On May 17th, join us for a gathering of like minded burners for fun, jazz, and dancing, with funds going to create Burning Man art.
• use ticket sale proceeds from this event to fund 2018 art projects
• be active participants in choosing which art projects receiving funding!
Please invite your camp mates, co-creators in your own art projects, and friends! Wear your fanciest prohibition era attire or your dustiest playa wear. All is welcome.
Event name explained:
> BM2018 = Burning Man 2018
> Prohibition = a swanky prohibition-era theme. There will be a live jazz band (with some dance beats as the evening progresses)
> Precompression = hanging out with burners and fostering connection and community b...efore we get to the playa
> for Art's Sake = we're funding art!
To submit art project for funding:
• prepare a short (1-2 min) video explaining: the art project overview (the team, prior experience at burning man, other sources funding, etc), how burners will interact with the art, and why the art is important.
• final video submission required by May 10th to be considered for funding during our event
• to submit your video, upload to youtube and email (subject line: «Art Submission») a link to the event organizer: [email protected]
• Finances: after we cover costs of the evening, we will split the remaining proceeds toward art projects we want to support. Estimated that we'll have a couple thousand dollars if the event sells out and we hit our bar tab minimum!
