Dreamtime Grant and Scholarship Application

Please read below before submitting an application.

Who can apply?
Dreamtime accepts applications from musicians, performance artists, artists, workshop leaders, and theme camp facilitators who have already filled out a registration or application form.

What kind of music, art, workshops and performances are funded?
We fund musical groups, performances, art installations, workshops, and theme camps that will further the aims of Dreamtime to inspire, educate, connect and empower people to create positive change in the world through a dynamic blend of arts, education, and celebration. We fund activities that are creative, have a positive and proactive message, and encourage participation, interaction and reflection. We like activities that are multi-disciplinary and can be experienced with multiple senses or include multiple mediums, and incite people to challenge the traditional perspective of music, teaching, learning, performance and art.

What can be requested?
Dreamtime is a 100% participant-funded and staffed event. You, and everyone else, should arrive at the gates ready to become involved in our temporary community, to help enhance the overall experience for everyone, and with the intent to fully embrace the creative, participatory nature of the event. Dreamtime is an effort made by the community for the community; everyone involved purchases a ticket in order to support the event and for the privilege of attending. Each and everyone of us are performers, students, teachers and facilitators at Dreamtime. This concept of participation is reflected in our approach which does NOT pay travel or other expenses, fees, or other compensation for performers, instructors, facilitators or artists at Dreamtime.

If you feel that you have something to offer but cannot bring your music, performance or theme camp to Dreamtime without some sort of assistance, you may consider applying here for a grant or scholarship to cover entry costs, travel expenses, materials, and so forth. Please understand that available funds are extremely limited, and only apply for the minimum that would enable you to participate. Your application will benefit if you are able to demonstrate that you are asking for the smallest amount possible and your genuine need.

Preference will be given to those applications that demonstrate resourcefulness and a true desire to participate and contribute to the festival, including:

  • Carpooling
  • Finding donated materials and services
  • Booking other paid performances/workshops/events nearby before or after the festival to cover expenses
  • Holding fundraising or benefit events
  • Finding sponsors
  • Volunteering at or prior to the festival

During the festival, musicians and performers practice freedom of expression in an environment of participation, sharing, and creativity. The culture that is being created is one where casual observation is replaced with an attitude of support and attentive witness. Many members of the audience are freshly charged from inspirational workshops and are ready to abandon themselves in celebration.
