The mission of the unSCruz Theme Camp Assistance program is to support Theme Camps created for or presented at unSCruz, realize their unique creative vision, and to promote projects that are participatory and/or interactive in nature or foster a sense of community.
New collaborations, and established groups are all invited to apply.
Inspired Theme Camp leads need to submit an unSCruz 2023 Theme Camp Assistance application via our website.
Theme camps are required to submit a basic but detailed project budget with the following considerations:
Eligible expenses: materials and supplies, equipment rental, limited contract work, delivery to/from unSCruz, and other costs directly related to the project.
Ineligible expenses: theme camp fees, living expenses, child care, or other personal overhead costs.
We encourage theme camps to seek multiple resources. Please indicate any other funding or support you are seeking (or have obtained) for this project, including in-kind donations and your own contributions.
You must maintain an open line of communication with unSCruz planning teams via phone, text, email, social media, carrier pigeon, or other reliable method(s).
We’ll be asking for progress reports. Depending on where you are and how you work, this could be in the form of videos, phone calls, emails with photos, studio visits, etc.
You must submit a safety plan before being allowed to set-up your project at unSCruz. This should include a plan for weather/wind/climate stability for structures, lighting provisions for nighttime, and/or whatever precautions apply to your project’s physical presence in the community space.
Theme camps must arrive to the event on time (as agreed). If you experience delays in production or delivery, please let us know as soon as possible.
We will reserve 10% of total assistance amount until after the event, to be paid once we receive a report.
