How to Dream [work-in-progress]

Collaborate on the proposal here!

Taking decentralisation seriously, we decided to distribute art grants this year via the Dreams platform. This is based on the amazing work from Borderland & Midburners who built it. It works pretty much like Kickstarter, Startnext, Betterplace, GoFundMe etc.

Do you have a dream?!?

Do you have a dream?

Read this! (work in progress)

The dreams platform is a powerful way to engage the wider community with the artists and art on the event. In addition, it allows for an easier application process and a more transparent budget distribution system. Our goal for this platform would not be limited to art grants, but can also function as a budget decision tool for more structural topics, such as gate or welfare.

This might radically change the way we do funding at Kiez Burn – now, the community decides what kind of dreams will get funded!

How to get started

  • If you are attending Kiez Burn 2019, please register an account on with the same email you used when buying a ticket.
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Please use exactly the same email addresses for Burner Tickets (where you bought your Kiez Burn ticket) and Dreams (our art grant platform) – if they don’t match, we can’t verify that you own a ticket and you will receive no tokens to spend on art projects!
  • Fill out your profile (email, phone, messenger info) so you can be notified and contacted easily.

  • Now you can create a dream or join an existing one!

  • Voting for dreams will be possible once Tickets go on sale

  • If you want to join a project or to contact a project manager, click “add my name”.

Start your own dream

The platform just distributes the funding (= art grants). It still requires some effort to make the dream happen! Whatever you wanna see around at Kiez Burn – make your dream as lucid as possible!

  • For your dream, write a nice description and upload images so that fellow Burners can imagine what your Dream going to be like.
  • Specify how loud your dream is going to be, how much space it requires etc...
  • specify a minimum funding goal (the money you need to realize your dream in the cheapest way) and a maximum funding goal (the money you need to make it really awesome!)

Support other dreams

  • One credit equals 1€. Suggest a funding range for your dream project: How much money does it need to make it happen at all? How many credits are required to make it super awesome?


Any questions? The DREAMS FAQ thread lives here.
