Summerisle is committed to helping you create and get your art to the burn.  Whether it be a completely new idea, a new version of an old favorite, or an amalgamation of every old piece of art sitting in storage, many of us have done one or all of the above and gotten it financed through Summerisle art grants.

Art grants are approved on a rolling basis.  As each proposal is received and as money becomes available, we will approve them…and we’ll keep approving as long as we have applications and money.

Art grant amounts can be any amount, we might not be able to fund the full thing, but get your proposal in earlier and more money will be available for you.

If/when your grant is approved, Summerisle will pay 100% of the grant up front so you can have the finances you need to get your art done and get it to and from the burn!  This can only work if we appreciate the
