Dear Artists and Friends,
I'm very excited to announce that the online form for submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) for The 2016 Global Art Grants grant cycle is now open. This program, formerly the Black Rock Arts Foundation Grants to Artists program, funds interactive and community-based artworks and art programs worldwide and year-round.
The Burning Man website has a general description of the program, detailed information about the criteria and how to apply, and aprintable example LOI form to help you through the process of completing it in the new online system.
LOIs for this program are due by 5pm Pacific Time (PST) on Tuesday, December 1. Full proposals are only accepted by invitation from among those who submitted an LOI. These invitations will be sent in late December and full proposals due February 1, 2016.
In order to submit an LOI, applicants will need to have a "Burner Profile" (an account used to log in to our online form system). More information about submitting an LOI though this system and a direct link to the form can be found on the criteria and application instructions page.
Thank you all for doing what you do. I am deeply grateful for the unbelievable creativity and energy that I get to experience in being a part of your community and I'm very excited to see this year's proposals!
