In this issue:

Are you an artist or theme camp who wants to bring a project to BEquinox 2020? Our annual Blissmas event is your chance to apply for a grant, recruit collaborators, and mingle with fellow burners and artists. Think of it like a "burner science fair." Each project presents a rendering, model, or other sample of your project, and the community votes on art grant recipients. You'll also have a chance to vote on the 2020 effigy.


When: December 7
Where: The Other Door, North Hollywood

When: March 18-23, 2020
Where: Seraphim Ranch, California City
