Art Grants


The Terrance L. Yates Memorial Art Grant was founded in 2016 after the passing of our dear friend, fellow burner, and one of the founders of This Event Is Cancelled, Terrance L. Yates. Money from this grant helps fund the art that we experience at TEIC. Community-driven art is one of the most important things that makes a burn worth doing. A great way to participate is through artistic expression. 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 in July of 2020. Applications are put to a vote by the Art Grant Committee. Approval is not guaranteed, and you may be contacted to discuss your application before we are able to move forward with approval. Applications will be accepted Wednesday, March 4th through Monday, May 4th at midnight. A completed application will include the following information:

1. ) Name of Project Lead and any associated members

2. ) Title of your project

3. ) Description of your project

4. ) Project budget, showing what the art grant funding will be used for

5. ) Drawings or visuals that aid in the description

6. ) A list of burns you plan to take the project to
