ART GRANTS FOR 2014 will open February 1st, 2014.
Promoting artistic expression is one of the most important aspects of the Burning Man experience.
Naturally, we promote Radical Self-Reliance, but we understand that artists can sometimes use a helping hand. To that end, we will once again make a few grants available to help you make art happen at Freezer Burn. If you would like to apply for one of the grants, please fill out the following form.
Grants will be awarded based on the number of applicants, the number of tickets sold and by participant donations (you can voluntarily donate directly to ART when you buy your Freezer Burn 2014 ticket!)
Awarded applications will be responsible to actually bring their ART to Freezer Burn 2014. They must also submit all receipts used for the ART project and submit a project budget.
We are aligning our Art Grant guidelines with those used at Burning Man. This means we are changing what we will and will not fund with this grant. Please review these changes before submitting an Art Grant Application:
What we do fund:
Interactive Art - For example, we will consider funding visual or interactive art pieces that will be displayed at a sound stage or theme camp (or anywhere else at Freezer Burn) but we won’t fund the infrastructure or activities there.
- Art related to the theme, and art not related to the theme
- Mobile art – we will support Mutant Vehicles
What we do not fund:
- Activities or performances (this is different from previous years)
- DJs and amplified sounds
- Domes, tents, teepees or stages
- Personal outfits and costumes
- Theme camps
- Food, alcohol and travel
- Anything illegal in the province of Alberta. While Freezer Burn is a private event, we are still governed by the laws of the province of Alberta.
The DEADLINE for ART GRANT APPLICATIONS is APRIL 1, 2014 at Midnight!!!
If you have any questions about art or wish to submit a more detailed application, please email . We’re so excited to hear from you!
Thank you for your contribution through active participation and for wanting to help co-create a fantabulous space for all of us to experience and explore! Thank you for making Freezer Burn a beautiful place!
