What is this grant?
A democratic grant process aimed at funding innovative community art projects within the Burning Man Global Network. We are interested in projects that create collaborations, break down the distinction between audience and artist, are directly interactive and/or enhance the public, civic sphere.
Participants in a session at the annual Burning Man Global Leadership Conference will award a total of $1,500 however they wish among any qualified projects. This is meant to both serve as an exercise in structuring and judging a grant opportunity as well as a way to provide a small amount of support and encouragement to worthy projects.
– Deadline for grant submissions is March 25th. (Midnight U.S. Pacific Time)
– Judges will review the grants at the 2016 Global Leadership Conference (March 31st- April 3rd)
– Winner(s) will be announced Sunday afternoon at the GLC. (April 3rd)
Who is eligible to apply?
Individuals, Groups, and Not-for-Profits are all eligible to apply. All projects *must* be endorsed by a local Burning Man Regional Contact. The RC does not need to be heavily involved with the process, but rather they will serve as a point of communication between the granters and the grantees.
To find out who your Regional Contact might be, see http://regionals.burningman.org/
How much can I request?
The total amount of grants given will be $1,500. This amount could go to one project or be split among two or more, so it might be helpful to explain what you would do with the full amount as well as how you would use a smaller amount.
The 10th annual Burning Man Global Leadership Conference (GLC) is an annual conference of Burning Man community leadership that happens each spring in San Francisco. From humble beginnings in 2007, where 70 Regional Contacts joined us at Burning Man HQ, the GLC has since grown to include over 400 participants from around the world.
These highly-energized folks are Burning Man’s global representatives and community leaders, ambassadors of Burning Man culture in their regions who throw any of 65 Regional events in 20 countries. They participate in the GLC to share ideas, best practices and inspiration, and to make the invaluable face-to-face connections that may just lead to the next big thing.
The conference is for organizers and community leaders in the Burning Man Regional Network, and space is limited, so attendance isn’t open to the public
Congratulations to Piper from Distrikt who is thrilled to be the latest member of Burning Man’s Communications team. Is she filling in the clown shoes left by departing Minister for Propaganda Will Chase? We shall see…
