Big Dub Festival 2019 Art Grant Application
Big Dub Festival is pleased to announce the availability of art grants intended to help defray the costs of materials and transportation related to creating and presenting works of art, interaction, and theme camps at our 2019 event.

Grants are intended as supplementary funding to help you build your project. Big Dub Festival reserves the right to award less than the requested amount and/or pay in installments, based on completion milestones.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the following (in no particular order):

• Quality: creativity, interactivity, thoughtfulness, originality, excitement, inspiration, social value

Grant recipients will sign a contract stating their intent to:

• Create the proposed art piece within proposed time frame.
