      BUILD it and BURN it

      Call For
      Proposals for Effigy Sculpture

      Gateway Burn 2010
      Water on the Moon & Other
      Impossibilities

      Event: June 10th - 13th

      ProposalDeadline: April 24th

      Gateway Burn is
      an official Burning Man Regional Event
      based out of St Louis.

      Gateway Burn is both
      a
      focused resulting expression of the collective creative
      energy of
      artists, creative beings, and doer of the Saint
      Louis community at large as well
      as a source and incubator
      of creative inspiration.

      Gateway Burn
      manifests as a four day camping art festival and performance
      collective. Volunteers work together to enable and
      empower
      the community by providing a location in space and time free
      of the normal cultural and logistical restrictions of the
      everyday existence of live in the city, freeing people to
      radically express
      themselves in ways that are not
      normally acceptable or possible.

      Gateway Burn will fund one featured burnable sculpture to
      be burned Saturday night June 12th.
      This is the featured moment of the even, so it should be
      in some way, spectacular.

      A Budget of $250.00 has already been earmarked
      for the
      effigy, but more money could be allocated based on the
      availability of funds, and the awesomeness of the
      proposals.

      Also, Gateway Burn can and
      will assist the execution of
      this effigy in several ways. We have
      skilled and
      equipped volunteers ready to help construct, locate
      free materials, transport the object(s), on site set up,
      clean up, and
      burn safety. If you have an idea, but
      not the skills, we will
      supply you with skilled
      volunteers. Do NOT let that prevent you
      from applying.

      ANY CREATIVE
      PROJECT IS ELIGIBLE FOR
      CONSIDERATION,
      Proposals will be
      evaluated based on the following
      (in no particular order):
      - Quality:
      creativity / interactivity /
      thoughtfulness / originality /
      excitement / inspiration
      -
      Execution:
      planning / feasibility / safety plan / clean-up plan /
      budget /
      past work
      - Principles:
      reflection of the "10
      Principles" of Burning
      Man
      - Theme: how or
      if the work supports the Art Theme of
      the event

      The GAS Committee
      will carefully review the Effigy
      proposals, and make the
      selection and notify the recipient as soon
      as possible.
