CORE Callout for Interest & Participation & Facebook Group to discuss

NOTE: NEW FB GROUP created to discuss possibility of a Vancouver CORE Project.
Please talk to your friends/allies and get on this group to talk to others who are interested in submitting an application to Burning Man to represent Vancouver in the Circle of Regional Effigies.
Meetings must happen in January/early Feb as the Application deadline is a very firm Feb 15!
Message from Meghan Rutigliano, Burning Man Regional Network Manager

Greetings, BURNING MAN Regional Groups!
It is with great pleasure that The Regionals Committee and Burning Man’s Art Department invite your region to apply for participation in our Third Annual Circle of Regional Effigies!

We’re tremendously excited about the creativity and collaboration that these regional art projects have inspired across the world and we’re looking forward to seeing the ideas that you come up with this year!

Full application information and a link to our downloadable art grant PDF can be found on our CORE 2013 Pre-Selection Info page:

Please direct any CORE-related questions to us via [email protected].

Happy holidays and we look forward to reviewing your submissions in February!

  • Total of 24 Effigies placed around the Man
  • Only 1 effigy app per Region, must be via the Regional Contact
  • Rigorous standards for Flame Effects
  • Submit a CORE Art Grant Application by Feb 15
  • If accepted, the standard Art Registration Questionnaire will also need to be submitted
  • Fill out a Theme Camp Questionnaire to reserve pre-event placement
  • Time commitment expectations, mandatory meetings, significant dates all laid out
  • Art Walk we require at least two of your team members to be on-site at your effigy during the Art Walk
  • Docents: The Art Department and Regionals Team expects each CORE group to coordinate the presence of Docents throughout the week
  • Complete application deadline February 15th. We know there will be refinements to the project/design made along the way but we want as much as you can give us by then for us to be able to make a decision on which effigies will represent in the Circle
