Firefly Art Grant season is rolling right along! While the Early Application deadline has passed for Creativity Grants, you can still apply during the second round of consideration until Sunday night, March 17.
In addition, two more art grants are open for submissions:
Burner Exchange Grants (BEX Grants) <https://www.fireflyartscollective.org/participate/art-at-firefly/art-grants…>
Legacy Grants <https://www.fireflyartscollective.org/participate/art-at-firefly/art-grants…>The BEX Grants are for art that has already appeared either at a regional burn event or Burning Man and showcases the local flavor of its origin. Grant money is intended to be applied to minor maintenance / improvements and shipping costs to Vermont. BEX Grants are awarded for up to $1000.
The Legacy Grants are provided to support existing projects which have been to Firefly in the past. Art can be exposed to many elements at Firefly — mud, rain, sun, and most of all, people — and this grant is designed to provide funding to help with wear and tear produced by this exposure. Legacy grants are awarded in tiers of $100 and $300.
March 17th: Second Round Creativity grant applications are due
March 25th: BEX and Legacy grant applications are due

– Firefly Art Grant Core
Let us help fund your art!
The first round of Firefly Creativity Art Grants <https://www.fireflyartscollective.org/participate/art-at-firefly/art-grants…> was going to be due this Friday Feb. 15, but we thought you might want one more weekend to submit, so now the deadline is Sunday night (2/17) at midnight!
This is your chance to get your submission reviewed first and possibly funded much earlier than usual. With a small number of submissions so far, your proposal will get a lot more attention. When the second round happens and we have 40 applications to wade through, it will be much harder to stand out. Even if you don’t get accepted now, you can easily reapply for the Second Round. You have literally nothing to lose by applying early!

The submissions close the night of Sunday, February 17, at midnight.
