Art Grants

The New York Burning Man Art Grant Program is aimed at helping to facilitate the creative process through public art, education and events.

The art grant program is open to applications by the community for any New York City based artist/educator who is building art to be brought to Burning Man, building art for Decompression, or building art for BM-related events in NYC.

LOIs submission close January 17, 2020. All submissions will be notified by February 21, 2020 whether or not you are invited to submit a full proposal. Full proposals will be accepted by invitation and will be due on April 1, 2020. Grants will be awarded in late May 2020.

We will prioritize funding of highly interactive, community-driven, collaborative works of art that are accessible to the public and civic in scope.
