2023 Board of Directors
Liam Lavelle – Chair
Robyn Thomson – Vice Chair
Robyn’s first trip to Black Rock City happened in 2010. She fell in love with the community, culture, arts, humour, reverence and irreverence. Since then she has returned to the big burn but has found a true passion for building and supporting her local regionals. Both BitF and OW have brought great joy over the years. Robyn’s been building art and co-leading Inkfish camp since 2017. Otherworld has become her home away from home and she is truly honoured to be able to offer this community.
Thank you for having me, it will be my pleasure to work with you all.
Angela Arvizu – Secretary
Burner for over 18 years. Angela is a self-identified geek.
A decade of work experience alongside the all-mighty computer and world travel has led the way to familiarity with various processes and settings. Angela can be found in the forest, with a Starlink as an idol.
She is known to serve a mean cup of tea with a flare, keen to ask deep questions to ponder life’s meaning as well as aware of human nature.
Jon Cunningham – Treasurer
Tribulation of facts, figures, charts and the mysterious vortex we call time, Jon is there and wants to know if you are doing alright. Can be found in a big pile of art.
Bianca Gunther – Member-at-Large
Bianca is inspired by the flow of rivers through forested mountains, the descent of water across lands to oceans, the songs of birds, beats of drums, musical meanderings, rollicking through dance, and artistic expressions of creativity.

She meets each and every task with interest and an open mind, is hardworking, efficient, and always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right. Backed by her sound technical knowledge and action-oriented mindset, she provides ongoing value through her commitment, care and kindness.
