Do you have an awesome idea for an art project? Well you’re in luck because applications for art grants are now open! 

The creativity we share is a huge part of what makes Constellation such a magical place!  We’re proud to offer art grants to help you fulfill your creative vision and contribute to creating community building experiences at the burn.

Art grants are intended to support and promote radically-expressive, community-based, interactive, and/or collaborative projects that help shape the creative core of the event. Anyone can apply for an art grant - we invite YOU to create something awesome!

In addition to individual art grants, we are also accepting applications for the Effigy and Temple
  • The Effigy: A tradition of Burning Man, the Effigy burn is the culmination of Constellation on Saturday night. The Effigy is a celebration of community and immediacy. We help build it, gather around it, watch performances involving it, and then we burn it and dance to its warmth. 
  • The Temple: At Constellation, the temple is a reverent space where participants can meditate, honor what has been gained or lost, experience the present, and contemplate the future. 
Learn more about the art grant process, review sample application questions, and submit your application here

Applications will be accepted through Friday, August 26 at 11:59pm (midnight) EST and reviewed on a rolling basis, and beginning on Friday, August 19 at 11:59pm (midnight) EST until all available funds are dispersed. So get your application in early!
