Black Rock Arts FoundationDeadline: December 1, 2014
The Black Rock Arts Foundation (BRAF) was founded by several of the partners who founded and produce Burning Man, an annual arts festival in the Nevada desert. BRAF was established to bring this modality of creating and coexisting with art to the rest of the world, with the vision that community-driven, inclusive, and interactive art is vital to a thriving culture.
The grant program funds highly interactive, community-driven works of art that prioritize community involvement in their development, execution, and display. BRAF funds art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope, and prompts the viewer to act. BRAF likes art that can be experienced in more ways than visually – art that is touched, heard, or experienced as well as viewed. The Foundation prioritizes funding art that involves the audience in its conception, creation, and presentation.
Amount: Grants range from $500-$10,000; most are between $2,000-$6,000.
