The Black Rock Arts Foundation and Burning Man’s Art Department have come together to form Burning Man Arts. As part of that transition, the Black Rock Arts Foundation’s Grants to Artists Program has become the Burning Man Global Art Grants program.

This program funds highly interactive, community-driven works of art that prioritize community involvement in their development, execution and display. It funds art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope and prompts the viewer to act. The fund looks for art that can be experienced in more ways than visually – art that is touched, heard or experienced as well as viewed. The fund prioritizes art that involves the audience in its conception, creation and presentation. This program does not fund art headed to the Burning Man event in Black Rock City.

The online form to submit a Global Art Grant Letter of Intent (LOI) for the 2020 grant cycle will open on November 13, 2019 at 12:00 pm Pacific Time and will close on December 18, 2019 at 5:00 pm Pacific Time.
