The 2020 ArtJump grants are designed to specifically cover a fixed amount of transportation costs for existing arworks.The grants will go towards artists that will take their art on tour through (their selection of happenings) in Europe.
Each artist will bring their work to Where the Sheep Sleep 2020 and at least one other event in Europe. These events can be Burns, Burning Man inspired events, Maker Faires or other artistic endeavours.
Any artist (including performers) can apply with an existing artwork.
This year we plan to fund a minimum of 2 and maximum of 6 existing art projects.
This year the total budget of €6,000 (Euros) is available for applicants. You can apply for a transportation grant to a maximum of €3,000.
Note to artists: Ask only for what you need. The jury will take into account how your transport budget is related to your overall project and budget. A realistic budget will positively affect your chances of receiving a grant.
The international jury - who all have their hearts and feet deep in Burning Man communities - will have the honour to make the grant selection
Last years jury:
The jury committee will judge your application on the following parameters:
Parameters for art participation:
To receive the art grant, the artist must define which events or public space (up to 3 within one year/2020) you would like to bring your art to.
You must have a practical transportation plan to and from the events (Upon registering you can download a template). Remember, these are leave-no-trace events. Shipping, events tickets, any insurance and any other art-related logistics are the artists’ own responsibilities. ArtJump grants only cover transportation costs.
To apply for a grant, you must submit pictures and a written description of your interactive or participatory art, as well as a description of your transportation plan to and from the events. Please note: you are responsible for securing your own entrance ticket to each event you plan on attending with your art. Register here to create a user account and then create your proposal here.
Please submit up to three pictures of your art once the proposal is created by editing your proposal on your personal page by clicking the 'Manage Images' button.
Applications are due April 30, 2020 at 11:00 (GMT+1).
Grant applicants will be contacted by the jury on the outcome beginning of May. If necessary winning art pieces should deliver technical drawings for playa placement and safety measures.
After April 30, when all applications are in, the jury will have a chance to review the projects. Based on the parameters mentioned above, the jury will score each application. In addition to the artistic parameters, the projects are also scored on feasibility.
