Call for Proposals
Gateway Burn 2011
Organs & Gears
Event: June 9th - 12th
Proposal Deadline: April 30th (THIS SATURDAY!)
Gateway Burn is an official Burning Man Regional Event based out of St Louis.
Gateway Burn is pleased to announce the availability of art grants intended to
defray the costs of materials and transportation related to creating and
presenting works of art at Gateway Burn.
ANY CREATIVE PROJECT IS ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING CONSIDERATION,
INCLUDING TRANSPORTATION EXPENSES
GAS (Gateway Art Support) will be awarding grants, in amounts from $50 -
$500 and are intended as supplementary funding to help you build and transport
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 /
- 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 your application and notify you in a
timely manner. Do not be discouraged if you are not awarded a grant. We have
limited funds and are forced to make tough decisions about where to apply them.
NOTE: Gateway Burn is a participatory event, so everyone buys a ticket; all
volunteers, leads, board members and even those with funded art projects.
