Interested in helping out year-round? You have a knack for growing and supporting our community in ways less related to our events? You want to help out but can't because you live too far from the action? This is a great opportunity for you!

Bringing an art project to this year's Alchemy? Art installation registration is now open! Registering your art project is not required, but with registration comes advantages galore! Follow this link to start the registration process: Art installation registration form.

Important Dates:
August 7th - Your greatest chance of getting preferred placement is to apply by August 7th, before the first Placement meeting!

August 31st - Placement deadline for the burn. All art that requires placement should be in by this date. Does this mean we can't accomodate you after this date? Maybe - maybe not. We will do our best to work with you, but you'd be better off having everything squared away before month's end.


Registering your art project will allow it to be labeled on a large map that can be found at Connexxus. Participants will be able to hunt your project down and shower it with "ooohs!" and "aaahhh!" and "what possibly could have been going through their head when the built that?!" Our Photography Team will know where to find your project while they're out doing their photography thing. Registration also allows you to choose your preference on where you'd like your project to be at the burn. Like theme camp placement, nothing is 100% guaranteed, but being able to work with the Art Team and Placement Team to get your project where you want it is a far cry from a battle royale-esque first-come-first-serve throwdown! We will do our absolute best to get your project exactly where you want it.

Art project registration is open to any participant bringing an art project, regardless of whether it was self-funded or funded through the Alchemy Art Fundraiser.

The Art Team would like to remind you that if your project is with a theme camp, then registering your project is NOT a substitute for registering your theme camp. Please do both! Art project registration and theme camp registration are two separate processes. Further, if your art project utilizes amplified sound in any way, then you must register your project separately from the Art Project Registration: Sound and Theme Camp Registration.

Does your art project in any way utilize open flames? Do you plan to burn your project? Then you need to talk with fire safety regardless of whether or not you register your project. Talk to them pronto by emailing
