As an experiment in community, culture, and self expression, Burning Flipside is at its core a participant-created art festival. Supporting artists' vision and expression is the philosophy that drives Flipside. Demonstrating your expressive talents enriches everyone's experience – the organization that runs the event brings only the main effigy – YOU bring the rest! Big art, burning art, performances, interactive installations, costumes, games, skits, and many other art forms are brought out each year by participants.
We’re here to help you do it. For 2011, we have added some opportunities to volunteer for infrastructure-created art (such as mutating our official vehicles and creating a circle of lanterns around the effigy). Additionally, we have added a logistics lead and some budget money to help local artists with the costs and efforts associated with bringing art to Flipside.
YOU, as the artist, can get involved and bring your Thing! Start by getting in tough, and please aid us in bringing attention to your creative endeavors by Registering Your Art so that we may place it or advertise it properly.
Assistance & Logistics!
We want to help you with your art project! There are materials grants available, transportation assistance from Austin to Pyropolis, volunteer coordination, electricity for your installation, and more! Let us know what you need help with (or what help you can offer) so that we can organize it!
