Re: Reasonable Honoraria Funding Request Vs. Total Budget

I'm pleased to share that someone who reads these boards has come forward as our patron and covered almost the entire amount that I requested from the Honoraia. :shock: I've now applied for placement and am working with the team I assembled to make this happen. There is a lot to do including fundrai...

Re: Reasonable Honoraria Funding Request Vs. Total Budget

Wanted to follow up that my project was not selected for Honoraria. I was bummed at first but have since come to appreciate the competitiveness of the selection. Here's a quote from the rejection letter: "This year we had the largest response we've ever had: with 677 Letters of Intent received, we i...

Small update on this. I did end up passing the LOI stage and yesterday submitted my full proposal for the art. Find out 2/21 if it gets granted. :coffee:

Glad you're having a go at it spacetime!

Re: Reasonable Honoraria Funding Request Vs. Total Budget

Okay. I substantially scaled down my previous design, and am building in a fair amount of buffer. I'm tempted to ask for more than half though, as the overall cost is not that high and I think still a solid impact.

Reasonable Honoraria Funding Request Vs. Total Budget

I am looking for guidance on how much of funding to request in my art Honoraria request versus the total budget of the piece. For example, if your budget is $5000, would it be appropriate to ask for up to 80% of that cost to be covered by the grant? If not, what kind of range would be seen as reason...

Re: 55 gallon drums and water storage

I echo the heart in right place comment and also any thinking about the burn in off season I think leads to better burns. That said, Portland, Oregon drained a 38 million gallon reservoir a few years ago because one guy peed in it. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/17/portland-flush-38m-gal...

Re: What’s the best way to hang/suspend things inside a yurt?

Thanks for all the additional detail about your decision to go. There is a lot of derision of turnkeys and neo-drainbows at the burn. But at least anecdotally your particular story says the burn is still not only approachable but winnable when capable people truly self-select in. That’s cool you did...

Thanks for the additional details. What kind of bed frame did you use where you were able to put storage under it? That sounds really good.

One place not to set up is the road. My first year some folks came along in the middle of the night and set their tent up there. :shock: I think it worked...for a few hours. Don't know where they went after that.

Re: Looking for tent and shade feedback

I would recommend planning to have two lines per pole. You may be okay if the wind really passes through, but if it gets strong, it can really blow stuff over. It can get frustrating fast if one goes over and getting them all upright again is challenging. This is maybe way too late to mention, but w...

Not in instead, but both. Now you're talking. A shaded tent, with a fan, and a damp top sheet over you, you will sleep an extra 2 hours. I guarantee it.
Do you just dunk a sheet in water and wring it out when you wake up in the heat?
