The largest art pieces on the Paddock are created by passionate Kiwiburners like you. Do you have an idea? And a hankering to build large art? Make your ideas a reality – Kiwiburn is receiving Expressions of Interest (EOI) for both the Temple and Effigy crew managers.

Your EOI needs to include:

– An image of the design

– A brief description of the concept and how it relates to the theme

– A physical description: dimensions and materials used (please consider type of materials used in relation to how it burns and the risk of flying embers, which may cause property damage)

– Consider what your Leave No Trace procedure will be in the event the Burn does not occur due to fire restrictions.

– How your structure will be made safe: We take Safety seriously so please consider the safety of the environment and the participants that will be interacting with your structure. If you require  advice on this, the Arts Team can assist.

– Budget estimate (keeping the estimate as close to a budget of $8000 if possible)

– Short artist bio


The full job descriptions outlining what both these jobs entail, and all submission details are on the website: ( and Submit your EOI by 16 August 2019.
