Burning Man and BRAF Art Grant Workshop and Art Lounge

You must RSVP if you wish to attend. Email to: rsvp-specialevents @burningman.com  (rsvp-specialevents @burningman.com)  

Attention Artists:

You’ve asked, and we’ve listened! This year we are hosting our first art grants workshop. Come hear from those involved in both BRAF’s and Burning Man’s grant processes about what is needed to create a successful grant proposal. You’ll be given a chance to ask questions about the mandatory grant forms – why we ask certain questions, what information we are looking for and more. If you can’t make it to the event, don’t worry! Send in your question by Wednesday, January 12th and it will be answered during the workshop. The workshop will be recorded, and a video posted on the Burning Man website shortly after the event.

After the workshop, please join us for the Art Lounge. This event is a social mixer for the artists and volunteers who created work for Burning Man and BRAF last year and/or are planning art projects this coming year. Your creative spirit gives so much to the world. We want to thank you for your inventiveness and resourcefulness. We hope this will be an opportunity to meet one another and spark increased creative cross-pollination and collaboration.

We invite our community’s artists to join the BRAF and Burning Man staff, members of the Burning Man Art Department, and ARTery volunteers for a little reception – our yearly, intimate gathering in appreciation of the visionaries among us!
