Art at Flipside and in the Community

The event itself is still certainly a glorious experiment in temporary community building, but our local community has continued to evolve into so much more. With the acquisition of the warehouse, which serves to support the event and our local artists, and the ongoing events being held throughout the calendar year, we are introducing new ways to support the community year round by providing information to help you connect to local artist opportunities, events, and each other.

You can’t have participation without art.

Project Support Page

Have a project you want to bring to Burning Flipside, but need additional resources to make it go? If you are seeking support, whether you are looking for people to help you build or financial assistance, you can fill out the submission form on the Art Project Seeking Support Page. If you are looking for funding, please include the link to your fundraising page. Once approved, your posting will be included on the art projects seeking support Page.

Art Skills Cooperative!

Self –expression and Cooperation are two of our community’s three guiding principles. With this in mind, we’re expanding the Flipside ART team offerings to support these tenets more vigorously! First, we’ll be piloting a program to collect volunteer Subject Matter Experts, in order to help our community makers realize their artistic visions to their full potential (Also, safely!) Second, we’ll be pulling in more community members with specialized knowledge for in-person classes at the warehouse. Sharing our knowledge with others and delighting in creating thoughtful, provoking, breathtaking artwork binds our community together!

Local Community Resources and Opportunities

Burning Flipside is, at its heart, an art festival. But that only happens one week a year and there is a larger world, which needs your gifts. Here you will find opportunities to connect with the wider world. These posted opportunities will mostly be in Austin and the surrounding areas, but not always. Come here to see contests, grant opportunities, artist workshops, chances to network, and requests for submissions/open calls for artists. Viva la art!

It’s a BLOG.

Our Art blog is designed to provide information, notifications and other relevant bits to the Flipside Community. Included will be local art happenings, artist spotlights, projects in need of support, interesting creations from other burn communities, and items of that nature. Please contact the Art Area Facilitator to contribute!

Also check out the registered art projects (must be logged in). Art Registration is open from March 18th to April 18th, 2022.
