Community Fire Jam
July 22, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Seattle Flow Arts Collective is so incredibly excited to announce that, after a year of hard work by our team, it’s finally happening: We cordially invite you to join us at our very first, city-approved, fully permitted, open community fire jam!
*Read ALL the info here if you plan to burn — Everyone who plans to burn will need to register with us 8 days prior to the event!*
Fire spinners of all skill levels are encouraged to attend. Bring all your props and throw on that swanky, fire-safe festival ensemble you didn’t get a chance to wear last year! Feel free to invite friends and family to watch, but this event is mainly for us to play! We’re long overdue for a night of camaraderie and revelry in this art form we love so much.
Location: Magnuson Park, in the parking lot in front of the Hangar 30 Building
Directions: Enter the park from the Sand Point & 74th St. entrance, drive straight ahead on 74th and use the parking lot on the right hand side.
This is a pay-what-you-can/free event. Donations of money or new, *unopened* fuel (Coleman or Crown camp fuel, and Ultra pure paraffin lamp oil) are deeply appreciated and help keep our flame burning.
Suggested donation is $10-20. Payments can be sent via PayPal at https://paypal.me/seattleflowarts, via our donation page at www.seattleflowarts.org/donate, or in person using Venmo or cash.
TO SPIN FIRE:
- Register in advance: *Make sure you fill out this Google form 8 DAYS before the event!* That means midnight on Wednesday the 14th. This is required by the Fire Department for our permit so there is no wiggle room! We can’t let you spin if you don’t sign up! (Link here, too!)
- Orientation: We’ll have a *required* safety and annual event orientation for every spinner! The first orientation will be at 7:00pm, with additional slots at 8:00 & 9:00.
- Volunteer: We need your help to keep the show running! When you sign up to spin, you’ll be asked to pick a short volunteer shift with either the Sign-in Desk, Fuel Depot, Safety, or Set-up/Tear-down Crew. This also gives you a chance to get training if you want to become a regular part of our team!
- Dress to Impress… and not catch on fire: Make sure to wear natural fibers or fire treated clothing! Cotton, leather, & denim are all safe bets. Leave the synthetics, feathers, and fur at home. Spin barefoot at your own risk!
