Grant Applications Now Open

Our arts and theme camp grant applications are now live!

In 2019, we have two grant schemes:

A Major Grant of $750, intended for a single large-scale built project; and A Micro-Grant Scheme of up to $250 for all other art and theme camp projects.

Our Major Grant is funded entirely by tickets, out of our Event Production Budget, and closes earlier to give the artist enough time to design and build their project. Our Micro-Grants and Theme Camp Grants are funded by a combination of the Event Production Budget and our forthcoming Minifyre fundraiser in May.

The 2019 Grant Assessment Team comprises:

Eliza: Artist & Modifyre Art Lead Tanya: Artist, BURN Arts Committee Member & Indigenous Liaison Anj: Theme Camp Co-Lead Stirlo: Architect & Modifyre Town Planner Alex: President of HSBNE & Modifyre F.L.A.M.E. Lead

This process is overseen by Emma (Art/Theme Camp Grant Lead and BURN Arts, Inc. committee member), who has no voting/assessment capacity.

If you’re applying for a grant, you MUST have registered first.

Grants and dates are as follows:

Large art grant 1 x $750 - applications open 15 April, close 18th May

Small grants/Theme Camp grants (multiple available, up to $250 each) - applications open 15th April, close 1st June. Interested? Head to https://www.modifyre.org/participate to find the application forms for both art and theme camp grants. For any further info please contact grants@modifyre.org.

BURN Arts, Inc and the Modifyre Community wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country
upon which Modifyre takes place, the Bigambul and Kambuwal Peoples.  


We also wish to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Country upon which we live, learn and work, the Jagera and Turrbal Peoples.
We honour their Ancestors and pay our deepest respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.  


We extend that respect to all First Nations People, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. We honour and respect their continued cultural and spiritual relationship
to their Traditional Lands, Seas and Waters and recognise their unique and valuable contribution to society.  


Sovereignty was never ceded.
