For Bioneers 2020 (now in its 31st year!), we are excited for art to play a vital, celebratory and transformational role at the conference.
Our mission is to program the 2020 conference with captivating, compelling and inspiring art and we invite you to help us make this vision a reality.
What is Bioneers?
The Annual Bioneers Conference is where you get a front row seat into a thriving and regenerative tomorrow, today. The conference, celebrating its 31st year, is an engaging and inspiring environment of collaboration, with individuals from all sectors and disciplines, engaged in co-creating a regenerative future. The Bioneers conference is where social, environmental and scientific innovators convene to present breakthrough solutions inspired by nature and powered by human ingenuity.
The Bioneers Conference fosters connection, cross-pollination and collaboration by bringing together diverse people and projects. We link strategic networks at the local, regional, national and international levels.
Bioneers conference attendance is 3,000+ with an engaged social media audience of 130,000+, and with a year-round conference engagement via its media and radio series production.
The Bioneers Conference will take place October 16-18, 2020 at The Marin Center, San Rafael California.
We look forward to your partnership and featuring your work,
The Bioneers Art Team
We are looking for art in these categories:
ART INSTALLATIONS FOR CONFERENCE GROUNDS: The Bioneers Conference grounds is a large 4 acress of leveled outdoor open space that is home to tents used for speakers and workshops, such as the Youth Leadership Tent and the Indigenous Forum. It is also where guests gather to eat lunch, collaborate, shop at the marketplace and rest in between sessions. Our goal is to curate the conference grounds with visually stimulating and thought provoking art. This is a very large space, so large pieces do well.
INDOOR VISUAL ART: We will be curating a beautiful indoor art exhibit and welcome indoor visual art that speaks to the themes of Bioneers.
GREEN TECH & TINY HOMES: Do you have cool green tech, a sustainability built structure or a tiny home you would like others to see and gain inspiration from? Bring it to the Bioneers Conference!
LIVE PAINTERS: We are looking for painters who would like to do a live paint outdoors to help activate the conference grounds. At the end of the conference, you have the option to include your painting in the silent auction for a shared split.
COMMUNITY ART PROJECT: We’re looking for art projects that can be done outdoors and involve the greater Bioneers community, let’s activate the space with community art! Examples include inviting guests to paint prayer flags, posters, murals, community mandalas, etc. Please consider re-usable materials.
SATURDAY NIGHT PARTY ROVING PERFORMERS: Every year Bioneers hosts a fun Saturday night dance party. This year, we’d love roving performers- such as hula hoopers, circus artists and walk around characters, or other great talent ideas to help create fun ambiance in the space.
