What does BurnT do with the money from events? Everyone is a volunteer is the organization, so there is no payroll. Instead, we help support two large community events every year, TComp in the winter and Hyperborea in the summer. In reality, TComp is the only event we hold that actually makes money. Hyperborea is designed to break even, or hopefully, be slightly positive.
So where does the money go? Aside from usual event costs, most of our spending goes to making art. Thanks to countless hours by our hardy volunteers, the org has enough to support artists who in turn take those funds and countless hours to create amazing pieces to share with our community and beyond.
