2019 Ignite! Art Grant Applications are now OPEN!

Hello Combustians! We are happy to announce the opening of the 2019 Art Grant Applications.  We will be accepting applications from now until January 15th. In our 4th year, we are excited to have a budget of $3,000 to disperse amongst our artists.  The number of projects we will fund is not limited, although our total budget is capped at $3,000.

Anyone can apply for an art grant; you don’t have to be a professional or even consider yourself an artist. We want YOU to make something to share! This is an all ages opportunity. If under age 18, the individual must have an adult sponsor that is, or is approved by, their parent or guardian. If you are an adult burner with some creative youngins, work with them to help pitch and develop their ideas and let’s bring some of their art to Combustia!

All forms of creativity may apply; in addition to fire and lights, other iterations of creativity are: performance art, costuming for stage acts, interactive installations, sculptures great and small, floating and flying dreams, and ephemeral experiences. You can engage any or all of the five senses, and give us an experience to take home that we won’t find anywhere else.  


For more detailed instructions, please go to here.  It is important to read the requirements thoroughly.  You will need to submit a budget, concept images, a timeline for completion, and an elevator pitch.  Remember to be as descriptive as possible so the art jury will be able to envision this idea you have created.  


Once you have reviewed the instructions, go here for the application.


If you have questions, please email [email protected].


Remember: You only have until January 15th to apply!
