The Process

Getting and Giving: How it all works!

What we fund

Ignition Philter is organized primarily to raise funds for projects intended to be experienced at Burning Flipside

Ignition Filter generally awards art grants up to $575 per piece. A team may apply for more than one grant if the pieces can be viable separately and if different people will accept the award.

The funds can be used for materials and supplies and anything it takes to get the art made. We ask that artists cover their own ticket, camping gear, and other personal expenses.  We will allow consider art car funding if the mutant vehicle will transport the general Pyropolis public.

Being awarded an Ignition Philter art grant does not guarantee you entry into the event. Artists must still complete the Burning Flipside ticket acquisition process, and follow all applicable entrance rules.

We love big art and small intimate art. Ready to show us what you got?

We’re raising funds to raise some FUN! (or wonder, delight, inspiration, and occasional confusion!)

The majority of our funding is donated during the Burning Flipside ticket purchasing window (starts Feb 1, 2024) . So when you are buying your 2024 Flipside ticket, please click to donate money to Ignition Philter Funds Art!

If you’d like to give directly, feel free to contact us at We can accept cash, checks or venmo. We are a 501c3 so your donations are tax deductible.

Awarding is so rewarding!

Do you love the art at Flipside? Would you like to help decide who gets the funding between the sacred and the propane? Do choosy burners choose art?
