Effigy / Temple Application

Interested in building this year’s Effigy? How about the Temple? We want to hear from you!

Calling All Creatives!

Once again, this year our agreement with the property does not permit burning (boo). But don’t let that discourage you. Instead, let that guide you to create something even more wonderful! Light art, visuals, robotics, maybe some performance art (yay).

Funds provided for materials and directed tickets available for the build team for the chosen project.

Interested? Please complete the application no later than May 5, 2024 @ 11:59 PM Pacific.

Guidelines
  • This year due to the site restrictions, no Effigy will burn.
  • There is no size restriction on a submission as a result of there being no burn.
  • Materials:
    • Any materials are welcome, since this will not burn.
  • All EFFIGY submissions must include a LEAVE NO TRACE PLAN. This includes a tear down plan, and a plan for loading/unloading. What are your thoughts for the structure post event, i.e. will you personally store and reuse? Can the piece be disassembled and materials donated to fellow artists and/or art build spaces?

  • Our new site has strict no fire restrictions that prevent us from burning the Effigy or Temple this year.

Something that either emulates a fire or that participants can share in doing.
