SAVE THE DATES: 2015 ART GRANT TIMELINE FOR FIREFLIES
ლ(╹◡╹ლ) ლ(╹◡╹ლ) ლ(╹◡╹ლ)
It's that time of year again when we all start thinking about what kind
of art we might want to bring to the woods of Vermont this July! Art is
a central part of Firefly, and the event wouldn't be the same without
the wonderful pieces that have been brought to Bethel over the years.
Bringing art is a great way to add a piece of yourself to the event and
contribute/participate in a meaningful way.
Because the timeline will be a bit different this year, we wanted to
give everyone a heads up before officially opening up applications.
There are five types of grants this year:
- Creativity Grants: basic grants awarded in $100, $300, $500, and $700
tiers, for projects coming to Firefly Arts Festival
- Legacy Grant: small grants to assist returning projects to Firefly.
- Burner Exchange Grant: Mid-range grants to help transport art from
other burns to Firefly (timeline still TBD!).
- Lace Grants: which are awarded to spectacular, larger projects that
will appear at both Firefly Arts Festival.
- Temple Grant: A grant to build the Temple at Firefly Arts Festival.
Here is the basic timeline for 2015:
January 10: Call for Art Grant Committee members
January 15: Lace and Temple applications launch
February 1: Creativity and Legacy Grant applications launch
February 14: Lace and Temple applications due
February 27: Lace and Temple Grants awarded
