Art Grants

Some of the funds we have raised will be used for an art grant program. The art grant program is aimed at helping to facilitate the creative process through public art, education and events. The art grant program will be 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. The application form and criteria will be published in November. We will prioritize funding of highly interactive, community-driven, collaborative works of art that are accessible to the public and civic in scope.

We expect to open applications shortly (bookmark this page) and keep them open until just before the Annual NYC Playa Arts Preview event, artist will be notified in the late spring and funds will be transferred in early summer.
