Leave your alter egos behind in the default world and embrace your super selves! We are all radical artists, devoted community members, and expressive participants. Every one of us is so much more than normal!


~~~~~~What’s super about you? Super human? Super hero? Anti-hero? Super villain? What super abilities does your alter ego hide in the default world? How do they manifest in the burn, in the community, in yourself? What super qualities does the burn bring to you? How do you use them? How do the super powers of the burn and those of others interact with your own? What part do you play in our Metropolis, our Gotham, our Water Mountain? . Be awesome! Be incredible! Be amazing! Be SUPER! SUPERBURN!!!!!!

GATEWAY Announcements 


**Gateway Burners Policy Statement regarding Registered Sex Offenders
This year, 2021, the self report deadline is April 4, 2021 for those that want to attend GW Family Picnic 2021 and Gateway Burn 2021. For all events after that, in 2021, and events in all following years, the deadline to self report will be 90 prior to the each event the individual is requesting access to.


**Gateway Art Grants for 2021 are still available!

For anyone who isn’t up to speed, we are doing grants a little differently this year to allow for more art, easier access, and more time to complete projects. Grant applications will be processed in two cycles. With the cancellation of our 2020 event, the second round and any subsequent rounds of grants have been postponed for now.

Approved artists will have 1 week to sign and return contracts.
Checks will be mailed within 2 weeks from signed contract deadline.

We hope to help you make amazing art! Your Gateway art support team,

David Burton
Melonie Bariola
Mike Howell
