Promoting artistic expression is one of the most important aspects of the Freezer Burn experience.
Naturally, we promote Radical Self-Reliance, but we understand that artists can sometimes use a helping hand. To that end, art grants will be available to help you make art happen at Freezer Burn. If you would like to apply for one of the grants please follow this page for the form, coming shortly.
Awarded applicants will be responsible to actually bring their ART to Freezer Burn 2017. They must also submit all receipts used for the ART project and submit a project budget.
We have aligned our Art Grant guidelines with those used at Burning Man. This means we have changed 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 or visual art to appear anywhere at Freezer Burn – For example, we will consider funding interactive or visual 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
- Burnable art
- Art related to the theme, and art not related to the theme
- Mobile art – we will support Mutant Vehicles
- Art for theme camps
What we do not fund:
- Activities or performances (this is different from previous years)
- DJs and amplified sound
- Domes, tents, teepees or stages
- Personal outfits and costumes
- Generators or fuel
- Freezer Burn tickets
- Theme camps’ sound systems or technical support pieces, structural and infrastructural pieces
- 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 2017 Art Grant Application will be open soon.
