Announcement and Call for Discussion
Firefly Arts Collective will organizationally and financially support experimental new Burn events growing out of the Firefly community. We are now requesting open discussion that will lead to formal proposals by motivated new leaders. We hope to receive proposals and make sponsorship decisions in late Summer 2020. We are currently accepting community feedback on the proposed questionnaire and decision process through March 2.
Firefly’s mission is to foster a collaborative environment and community for participatory arts, encouraging people to express their creativity, and challenging them to extend their concept of both community and art.
To that end, we recognize that Firefly’s July camping event is of a size and maturity that fundamentally limits the different ways in which we can experiment with changing values, prioritize new principles, and challenge community expectations. We wish to use our resources to foster new events that can do so, as part of the existing Firefly community or by spawning new communities entirely.
