Hi Alchemy!
 
Greetings from Boston, MA :) My name is Rachel Bee and I'm on the Board for the Northeast regional burn, Firefly. 
 
For the first time this year, Firefly Arts Collective is offering a Burner Exchange grant to help transport art from other burns to our event in Vermont.
 
We'd love it if you could spread the news of this grant to your community. Applications are open now until March 30, and folks will have to register for a ticket between Mar 2 - 24 to be eligible.
 
More info here:

Let's get some Burner Art on the Beltline!  
 
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for artists to solicit outdoor, temporary works of art for presentation on the Atlanta BeltLine in the fall of 2014. The upcoming exhibition represents Art on the Atlanta BeltLine’s fifth year in presenting visual and performing art on more than eight miles of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. Art on the Atlanta BeltLine kicks off on Saturday, September 6, 2014 with the annual Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade.

Euphoria 2014 is Sold Out

 

Yes, all tickets for Euphoria 2014 have been sold. Do not despair, however! Keep your eyes open for people reselling their tickets as the event gets closer.

 

Read on! This Alchemist is full of information YOU NEED TO KNOW about Euphoria. So read carefully, and contact eventleads@euphoriaburn.com with any questions!

 

--------------------

 

Euphoria Art Fundraiser Submission Deadline & Information

 

Euphoria has set aside $3500 to fund art!  The window for art grant proposals is necessarily a brief one.  The deadline for submissions will be Sunday, February 9th, and the online fundraiser will start the following day.  

 

The link to submit your grant proposal is here:

http://tinyurl.com/ArtGrantApp

 

The fundraiser itself will run for two weeks, from 2/10-2/24.  This will leave artists roughly 1 month to organize and/or create their projects. Using your Euphoriaburn.com account, each Euphoria attendee will be allocated 10 ballots that you can cast for your preferred projects.  At the end of the fundraiser, money will be disbursed proportionally based on the total percentage of ballots that project received.  Additionally, individuals will also be able to donate to projects out of their own pocket, and these funds will supplement org funding.  While projects funded by the ballot process will be capped at a maximum award of $450 (in order to allow the maximum number of art projects to be funded), individual donations are not limited in any way.

 

Have questions?  Email art@euphoriaburn.com

 

------------------------

 

Swag and Banner Design Submission Information

 

One of the first things that people see when they get to Euphoria is our participant created sign. We are looking for a creative artist (or more!) to participate in creating this experience. You bring the art and the creativity and we will fund it. It doesn't have to be a big rectangle - get creative! It can even be a computer graphic (.CAD or vector) that we have printed up. Bring us your ideas! Email us at eventleads@Euphoriaburn.com

 

We also want YOU to create the swag design for this year's Euphoria.

A few things to keep in mind:

-Specify the material you think you think the swag can be made out of (Metal, wood, plastic, sculpey, brains, etc)

- Be prepared for us to need to tweak your idea just a little in order to make it happen.

- You will also be sworn to absolute secrecy! Don't ruin the surprise!

 

Please send your submission to eventleads@Euphoriaburn.com by no later than February 14th 2014

 

---------------------

 

Theme Camp Registration

 

Theme camp and sound camp registration is up! Please remember that you MUST register your theme camp if you want placement for 2014. Registration is not required if your camo would rather land-grab any of the non-reserved areas. All SOUND camps must register in order to use amplified sound equipment.

Euphoria Food Drive Information

 

Attention all Euphorians:

 

This is Kim, one of the coleads for LNT. I am running  Euhporia's very first food drive to benefit a local food pantry in Lafayette, GA called the Care Mission. This a great opportunity to get the burn community involved to give back to the Lafayette Community. I am asking for you to bring nonperishable food items such as:

 

- canned goods (such as chicken, tuna, beans, soups, veggies, fruits, etc)

- dry goods  (such as boxed crackers, cereal, granola bars, oatmeal, etc)

- boxed complete meals

- pasta/rice products

- dried fruit

- peanut butter and jelly

 

**There is also a need for condiments (ketchup, mustard, mayo) as well as sugar, flour, cornmeal, and vegetable oil. **

 

Burners should bring items specifically for the food drive but at the end of the burn, if you have any unopened items that would be appropriate please feel free to donate those as well! With 888 participants, if every person brought one item our food drive would be a stellar success!

 

----------------------

 

Euphoria 2014 Scholarship Ticket Information

 

Euphoria will be providing 20 scholarship tickets to the burn this year. To apply for a scholarship ticket, please submit ONE 8 ½” x 11” sheet of paper detailing (in whatever form you choose) why you feel you deserve a scholarship ticket. We want you to get creative!

 

All submissions must be mailed (yes, that’s right, with a stamp and everything) and postmarked no later than 2/17 to be considered.

 

Submit all scholarship tickets to:
