Art Grants

Terrance L. Yates Memorial Art Grant


The Terrance L. Yates Memorial Art Grant was founded in 2016 after the passing of our dear friend, and one of the founders of This Event Is Cancelled, Terrance L. Yates. For 2019’s Burn, the Topeka Area Burner’s Financial Committee is pleased to award… some amount, stay tuned, to encourage artisans around the world to create artistic expressions!

Any member of the Burner Community may apply for a portion of this grant money. The art must be presented at This Event is Cancelled which is held outside Eskridge, Kansas the last Thursday through Saturday of July (25 – 27). Juried weight will be placed on how the piece will contribute to this year’s Burn theme – “There Oughta Be a Law”

Applications will be accepted Saturday April 6 through Midnight, Saturday, May 4. A completed application will include the following.

– A Description of Project

– Drawings or Visuals that aid in the Description

– A Project Budget

– What the Art Grant funding will be used for

– A List of Burns you plan to take the project to

Applications will be juried by TAB Community Leaders and will be announced Sunday, May 5.
