Announcing DISTRIKT Camp Art Grant 2013

Post by DISTRIKT » Tue Nov 27, 2012 9:47 pm

From our inception over a decade ago, our 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. So, once again this year we are proud to annouce the 2013 DISTRIKT Art Grant!

We will provide up to $5000 for one or more art installations to be showcased at DISTRIKT during Burning Man 2013. 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.

Email Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to no later than December 31st 2012.
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, 2013.
Proposals are accepted by invitation only, and are due February 15th, 2013
Selected grantees are notified March 1st, 2013
Initial funding released to new grantees by March 15th, 2013
Finally, regardless of how Burning Man decides to conduct ticket sales this year, please note that we can work with the winner(s) to procure tickets if necessary.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at and we will do our best to respond quickly.

Now bring it on!!

With love,
Your DISTRIKT Governors :D

This is so awesome. I don't see any other large sound camps doing this. Maybe we'll start a trend. :)
