WHAT IS THE VENICE AFTERBURN ?
For the past 4 years we hosted a big event called the Venice Afterburn. We invited burner artists to bring their art cars, theme camps, interactive installations, music and other playa art to Venice Beach, filling the streets with Burning Man magic. Following Venice Afterburn's growing popularity amongst the community and the local burners, last year we decided to move to a bigger location - the Windward Plaza by the beach - and to extend the event to TWO days!
This year, the Venice Afterburn becomes an official Burning Man Regional Event and it will take place on September 22nd and 23rd.

WHO ORGANIZES IT?
The Venice Art Crawl is a non profit organization based in Venice Beach, California. Its mission is to foster the creativity that makes Venice such a vibrant artist community.

WHY ARE WE RAISING FUNDS?
Such large scale production requires a budget, especially because the event is FREE OF CHARGE and follows all the Burning Man principles; in particular the one of decommodification, that is, the Venice Afterburn is an entirely SPONSOR FREE event. That's why we started an online campaign in addition to our usual annual fundraising efforts, reaching out to our beloved community, burner network and art lovers.

HOW WILL THESE FUNDS BE USED?
There are so many things involved with producing an event. Money is needed mainly for permits, security, equipment rental, port-o-potties, power, fuel, and more.
Without all of the above, the event couldn't happen.
We budgeted $11,000 for this year's event. Ideally we need to raise funds by August 31st.

WHERE IS THIS MONEY GOING and WHO ARE WE?
The funds raised by the Venice Art Crawl through this campaign will be entirely allocated to the production of the September Afterburn event.

The Venice Art Crawl is a Committee of the Venice Chamber of Commerce.
We are a volunteer run organization and our team is composed of art passionates, event producers, artists, curators and designers.

Specifically, the Venice Afterburn production team is:
Daniela Ardizzone, event Producer and curator;
Sunny Bak, Venice Art Crawl President;
Eduardo Manilla, outreach and production;
David Stine, design and promotional material;
and many other volunteers that help make this happen and that we are deeply grateful to.

Please donate what you can afford, but please donate if you love what we do and/or you plan on attending this year's Venice Afterburn.

WE LOVE YOU!

See you on the dusty beach :)
