Burning Man Arts: Global Art GrantsDeadline: December 18, 2019
The Global Arts Grants program funds highly interactive, community-driven works of art that prioritize community involvement in their development, execution, and display. It funds art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope, and prompts the viewer to act. It likes art that can be experienced in more ways than visually – art that is touched, heard, or experienced as well as viewed. The Global Arts Grants program prioritizes funding art that involves the audience in its conception, creation, and presentation. This program’s impact is driven by a willingness to take risks and be the first to give a grant to a project or to work with artists and projects that other funders might avoid, as well as a focus on community-driven processes that have effects far beyond the artwork itself.
Amount: Grants range between $500-$10,000 and average $3,000-$6,000. Burning Man Arts typically funds only a portion of a project, but it does occasionally fund 100% of a project’s budget.
Eligibility: Individual artists; art groups, organizations, and collectives; and artists located anywhere on the globe.
