Art Grants

Black Rock East's mission to cultivate the Burning Man environment includes support of community art and artists. Proceeds from events are contributed back to artists throughout the year. Assisting artists in making their dream a reality is key to Black Rock East's mission - whether it's funding to start a project, improve an already made one, or for getting a piece to an event.  


Decompression 2018 Grants

Grants are closed.

Artists interested in funding for Decompression can submit for up to $500 towards their project. Funded projects are expected to appear on November 3, 2018 in Providence, RI for the event. Transportation from Boston to Rhode Island is available, if needed.

Projects that were funded for Firefly in 2018 are eligible to receive funding above Black Rock East's grant allocation for appearing at Decompression.
