Now Open: Creativity Grants, Round 2 for Firefly 2023!

Round 2 of Firefly 2023 Creativity Grant Submissions Are Now Open!

Did you miss your chance to submit a proposal for Creativity Grants last month? You have another chance!

Over the years, the Firefly Arts Collective (FAC) has been proud to provide grant support to Firefly artists to enable them to express and fulfill their varied creative visions. These grants are intended to support and promote radically-expressive, community-based, interactive and/or collaborative projects that help define and shape the creative core of the event.

Art is a central part of Firefly, and the event wouldn’t be the same without the wonderful pieces that have been brought to Vermont over the years. Bringing art is a great way to add a piece of yourself to the event and contribute/participate in a meaningful way.

We are now accepting applications for our primary grant category, the Creativity Grant! This grant is intended for all your ideas for new art – everything from traditional art like sculpture, to immersive spaces, to silly little games. For more details, check out the grant page here.

Creativity Grants are available in tiers from $150 to $1000. Please indicate which tier you are applying for in your grant application (you may apply for multiple tiers!).

Submissions Due: 4/2/2023

How to submit?

As many of you have no doubt surmised, we will be unable to gather this June and July for what would have been Firefly 2021. We feel it would be irresponsible and potentially damaging to the health and well-being of our extended community to hold our in-person event this year, and wanted to let you all know so that you may plan accordingly.
