BURN ARTS

WE THRIVE ON PARTICIPATION...

Donate

BURN Arts Inc. - the Brisbane Urban and Regional Network for the Arts - is an independent arts organisation dedicated to the promotion and development of participatory arts and culture in Brisbane and surrounding regions. 

BURN Arts is predominantly responsible for the production of Modifyre, an annual celebration of participatory arts held near the town of Inglewood in southeast Queensland. However, in our year-round presence, we facilitate a wide range of activities, including workshops and skill-sharing, public performances, spectacles and events. By offering free access to equipment and materials, auspicing and legal services, and a highly-skilled volunteer base, we aim to equip our artists with the necessary resources to create and develop interactive, participatory artworks and events within their communities and further afield.

“Creating a safe and positive space for people to be authentic, inspired and inspiring, we are care- takers of imagination and instigators of open-hearted wonder”
— Stephen Raspa, Burning Man Project
