How to Submit a Letter of Intent

The application process for our 2024 grant cycle is CLOSED.

If you’re interested in applying for funding for an art installation bound for the annual Burning Man event in Black Rock City, you must first submit a Letter of Intent which will allow the Grant Committee to select which projects will be invited to submit a full proposal. 

To apply for a BRC Honorarium, please make sure you’ve read about the Black Rock City Honoraria program, check out the LOI Instructions and FAQ, and then submit a Letter of Intent via Burner Profiles. It’s mandatory that you submit your LOI through our online process; we will not accept applications via email or mail.
