ArtJump 2020

Since the Sheep 2020 is cancelled, we’re rolling ArtJump to 2021. Hold on to your creative ideas … together we can create an even better Sheep 2021.

Let’s stay creative. Let’s stick together. Let’s keep the fire burning  #untilwehugagain


The ArtJump is the yearly art funding project of Burning Man Netherlands. Through this grant we celebrate and stimulate the European exchange of art, inspired by Burning Man and/or related to the Ten Principles. By providing transport grants to existing Burn-inspired art, we hope to spread participatory art around Europe. Our ambition with the ArtJump is not only more exchanging of inspiring art but also increasing civic involvement and building bridges with communities in the default world.

What does the ArtJump do?

The name says it all: it is a jump(start) for getting your art across Europe. The grants will fund artists who take their art on tour through (their selection of happenings in) Europe. Therefore we call it the ArtJump. No rocket science here.

ArtJump grants are designed to specifically cover a fixed amount of transportation costs for existing art pieces. The grants will allow you to take your art on a tour through Europe, so you can reach a bigger audience and more people can enjoy these wonderful creations or performances.

After three successful editions we are gearing up for this year’s ArtJump.

Check here for all the essentials!

Who can apply?

Any artist (including performers) with an existing work of art, which is participatory and interactive, can apply.

One of the most recognisable aspects of ANY Burn event, is the abundance of amazing and inspiring art. Burning Man Netherlands wants to support the artists behind these artworks, to share their art with a greater audience across Europe.

A professional (international) jury of dedicated Burners and artists are given the daunting task of judging and granting the ArtJump awards.

Ready to apply?

Do you want to be one of the artists that has a chance to go on a road trip with your art?

Applications are due April 30th, 2020.
