Announcing 2012 DISTRIKT Art Grant!

Postby DISTRIKT » Wed Nov 16, 2011 12:29 pm

From its inception ten years ago, DISTRIKT's (originally, The Deep End) goal has been to provide a great daytime vibe of music, dancing, and alternative arts at Burning Man. We live and breathe our ideals year around, and look forward to giving back to the community that has inspired and bonded us together.

We continue to look for new ways to evolve within the Burning Man culture we hold so dearly. In early 2011, we became The Deep End 501(c)(3) non-profit. For 2012, we are pleased to announce the first ever DISTRIKT Art Grant!

We will provide up to $5000 for one or more art installations to be showcased at DISTRIKT during Burning Man 2012. The art should blend and interact with DISTRIKT (i.e.- extremely fragile nighttime-oriented installations won't make sense at a crowded and energetic camp operating during the day.) Other than that, the sky's the limit!

As with grants from BRAF or Burning Man itself, this is not a commission -- the art is yours to keep. We simply provide funding and a venue within which to showcase your creation. Though we'd love to have you, camping with or becoming a member of DISTRIKT isn't a requirement.

If you're interested and feel your installation would be a good fit at DISTRIKT, please follow the following instructions.

Timeline/Process:• Email Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to grants@distriktcamp.org no later than December 31st 2011.
• The LOI should include the following information
• Name of artist or collective
• Name phone number, email address, and mailing address of contact person
• Name of project or program
• Amount requested up to $5000
• Brief description of project, and how it fits the ethos of DISTRIKT (400 words or less)
• Attachment or link to images or conceptual drawings
• Invitations for proposals, along with further instructions, will be extended no later than January 15th, 2012.
• Proposals are accepted by invitation only, and are due February 17th, 2012
• Selected grantees are notified March 1st, 2012
• Initial funding released to new grantees by March 15th, 2012

As with any new process, no doubt there will be questions, please feel free to email us at grants@distriktcamp.org and we will do our best to respond quickly.

We're thrilled to take this step forward, to evolve, and mature€¦to give back at a new level.

Now bring it on!!

With love,
Your DISTRIKT Governors

I'm leaving this cross-post up as it's a great idea- I am locking it to keep the conversation in one place, however. Please respond to this thread instead.
