Artist and Performers Grant / Fund Raising Platform

One of the core parts of our mission for Queerburners is to help see artists reach their goals in the community. To have your voice carried into the greater community with our values and mission in mind. What that exact policy is and how it will be managed is in development as we speak. Completing this form is not an agreement that we will fund you. We hope to have our program flushed out and publicly announced by January 2022. Meanwhile, you can let us know you have a project you want to put into the pipeline and someone from Queerburners will be in touch between now and January. (Scroll down for application form)

Singularity

It was an absolute pleasure to partner with Rebekah and her team with Singularity. They brought a version of the piece to All Of Us 2018 and see it on playa that year in it's full form. It was tremendous to see her success and the opulence of her vision. Rebekah was well known by that time for her 2013 piece called the Church Trap. Pieces of that remain today at the Burning Man organization offices in San Francisco.

 

Singularity was an interactive installation art piece that was not only about moments in time, but was also about recognizing how events change the course of our lives. This piece can be interpreted in different ways but the main focus attempts to explore how traumatic events are carried with us for the rest of our lives. Growing up gay in a strict Christian household was the perfect storm for creating trauma in my life as well as serving as inspiration behind this piece. Having the ability and mental health tools to turn my trauma into an interactive art piece allowed for others to open up about their past experiences and connect with one another.

Thanks to a generous donation by the All Of Us Event in 2018 we were able to bring Singularity to life before she made her way to Burning Man that same year. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share Singularity with the queer burner community and hope to continue bringing art to the world for all of us to enjoy.

The Journey

We were so blessed to have The Journey as our biggest art piece ever to an All Of Us Event by a queer artist. So much so that it can be seen featured on our promotion video by Jeff Shick on our events page. Then, to see the whole piece at Black Rock City in 2017 was truly magical. Dan, Lee and the rest of the team were just amazing and we are grateful they joined us on our journey. 

 

The Journey, an interactive wood sculpture inspired by our DNA's double-helix, reflects on our journey through life. Utilizing music, lighting and responsive technology, The Journey inspires people to look inward and create experiences for self and community within it's walkable structure.

Here is the form if the embeded form is having trouble. We have not written the policy as of yet and will follow up be the end of the year.
