PreCompression exists in order to inspire and encourage participation in the Element 11 festival and to provide revenues as a fundraiser for MORE art grant monies to be dispersed to artists, prior to the festival. We want the artists and their projects to have time and resources to be ready for our Utah playa.
Given those missions, having an afternoon/early evening event at the Utah Arts Alliance is the best fit. This is a family friendly event with outdoors areas for DJs and art cars to participate easily, and the courtyard space and gallery to host tables with art project presentations.
Our goal is to give art project coordinators another chance at getting more or initial funds for their project by coming out to the PreCompression with a visual aide, model, powerpoint, or other presentation that describes their project scope and vision.
We encourage ALL in the community to come participate! Come as an attendee and help select what art pieces will make it to the festival by donating art bucks to help get that project funded. Come as an artist to have your project be seen and heard with potential reward for doing so. You’ll be inspiring each other in the process as we all get a chance to have a sneak peak on the awesome art projects planned for the Element 11 Festival!
