2019 Ignite! Art Grant Information and Application
One of the most incredible elements of the Ignite! experience is the artwork and creativity that blankets the landscape and fills the corners of Combustia. It's something that lives in the memories of everyone who has attended. We invite you to contribute to that experience, and would love to hear your ideas and see if we can help fund their completion.

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 approved by their parent or guardian (if not one of those). If you are an adult burner with some creative youngin’s, 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 awesome iterations of creativity are: performance art, 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. The number of projects we will fund is not limited, nor the amounts granted to each, but the total amount of funds we have limits the final results. For 2019, we have a total budget of $3,000 to disperse between all recipients.

This document outlines the following elements: Process, Exemptions, Selection Criteria, and Application Requirements.

Please be thorough in your responses and include pictures! Over the years, projects that are thoroughly yet concisely described with images included have been the most successful at receiving funding. Clear budgets, concept images, and attention to detail helps the jury see your vision.

These elements should give you what you need to apply. Read through everything and show us how amazing the art will be this year. Please forward any questions, images, renderings, and other support materials electronically to artgrants@ignite-burn.com.

Share your creativity with the Ignite! family.
