What are art grants? 

Art grants are funding granted to artists to cover their raw material cost. It does not include labor or transportation fees. This year, we have a budget of 20,000RMB and are hoping for roughly 20 projects. The allocation of this budget is based on these thoughts:

  • Do we like it
  • Accessibility
  • Safety
  • Sustainability
  • Leave no trace
  • Delivery

A good project:

  • fits the principles and Burn ethic
  • is ambitious but realistic
  • is cheap!
  • Practical – people, weather, truck
  • has good ‘buildiness’
  • is interactive
