Art Grants

GVIAS provides grants for interactive art projects.  Our goal is to encourage Interactive Art that fosters the ideals of the Burning Man community. Artists working in experimental, emerging, cross-disciplinary, and traditional categories are encouraged to apply, to display their Interactive Art and add to the collective, participatory spirit in the community and at Burning Man & GVIAS events.

GVIAS aims to contribute grants to as many art projects as possible for the event and this may result in artist only receiving part of their requested amount. The GVIAS grants committee encourages artists to also seek funding and fundraise outside of the grants program.

Please note that applications are accepted until 11:59pm on the date specified. Late applications will not be considered. Rounds and closing dates are subject to change so please check back regularly.
