Temple Proposals

temple at night The Temple, like the Effigy, is a special art piece at Apogaea.

The Temple at Apogaea is meant to create a reverent space where participants can meditate, honor what has been lost or gained, go inward, slow down, let go, or whatever other experience can be made of it. Each temple built has it’s own unique space to be encountered. Because of our current location, we need temples that incorporate ceremonies other than large wood-fueled burns — we cannot have ember producing fires. Previous temples have provided deep experience through water, ceremony and musical elements.

Temple proposals should be submitted in December – January prior to the event. If you want to submit a proposal, please submit a grant application during the BIG MONEY grant round creative grants. If multiple applications are received, CATS will select one for the event. Even if your submission is not selected to be the the temple, you may still receive funding to bring your piece as its own work of art.

Please read and review all of the creative grant guidelines if you’re interested in submitting an proposal.
