Can you get creative ... with a caravan?

Organisers of Electric Picnic are offering grants for people with great ideas.

ELECTRIC PICNIC ARE giving out grants for art caravans.

Yes, that’s correct. Grants of between €300 to €2,000 are being provided to help you get your creativity on.

Submission forms are available…but, be warned, it is not as easy as it first sounds.

The Catch?

To begin, the work has to be ‘interactive’!

Just sitting, looking pretty isn’t going to cut it…your wheels need to offer some sort of entertainment. But without any performers or activities. Basically, the caravans have to be interactive but also “stand on their own as installations”.

Roz Jellet is the stylist behind Trailer Park and she says:

It’s all about participating, working behind the scenes, creating your own bit of madness, and looking after your own front porch


It’s time to get your creative thinking cap on as the deadline is 28 February at 11.59am…to be specific about it.

Then it’s time for final decisions to be made and you’ll find out by mid-March if you’ve got the cash to create your masterpiece!
