Make some art!
In the spirit of Radical Self Expression and Participation, Interfuse and Midwest Burners are looking to encourage artistic and creative projects for Interfuse 2017 through funded art grants.
Proposals deadline –
Wednesday, February 15th, 2017
Selection of grant recipients – Sunday, February 26th, 2017
Installation of artwork completed – Friday of the event by 4pm (this is so that attendees of the event will have time to enjoy the art. We do not want projects finishing up on burn night, etc.)
Grant Value: from $1-$599 Grants are intended to cover materials and transportation.
Funds are distributed within 30 days of execution of the project.
We encourage the use of recycled, reclaimed, and/or repurposed materials as much as possible for your project. We also encourage you to include community volunteers on your project.
All proposals must be well composed & express the visual engagement with the audience.
Proposals will be evaluated by a selection board of 10 people who have been involved with the arts and from various regions. Submissions are evaluated based on the following:
1. Reflection of any of the “10 Principles” of Burning Man
2. How well the art piece(s) work with this year’s theme “Repurpose Revolution”
3. Quality – how it interacts, originality, creativity, inspiration, excitement
4. Execution – planning, feasibility, safety plan in if needed, clean-up plan, past work
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with further questions.
Any additional files you have – photos, drawings to help illustrate your vision should be submitting withe the project name in the subject line
