Unit 1a 143 Kirkstall Road
Fire Jam Feb 2020 @ Open Source Arts

You’re invited to join our growing community of fire performers to enjoy an evening of fire twirling under the beautiful night sky with the wonderful friendly circus community of West Yorkshire.

We invite all fire twirlers, prop movers, those who are curious, photographers, chitty chatters and watchers of all abilities to come together. Show off your skills, skill share, learn from others, be inspired, and meet other performers from Leeds and beyond.

This is not a led session, so there won’t be anyone leading the activities – this is a shared space, where anyone is invited to be a teacher and also a student, where you can practice your craft in good company. Bring your own fire equipment, supply your own fuel, and clean up after yourselves please.

The Fire Jam is open to anyone with any light, fire or glow circus equipment. Indeed if you are wondering if it is something you fancy trying, or just want to meet some lovely people and be entertained – come join the fun!

The event is using our Collaborative Finance Model!

Collaborating, also known as open sourcing, involves making the source code (of some instructions or design) accessible to anyone to use, modify and take inspiration from, according to what they wish to do! We believe money is a resource, and like other resources, the way it is used defines the impact it creates. We want to pay people properly for their time, and keep money flowing in our community.

£30p/hr space hire and venue manager x 2: £60
£10/hr admin, marketing, space prep, insurance : £60
Total: £120

To make this activity start to become sustainable for all who are involved, if 12 people come, that divides to £10 each, or £5/hr. If 20 people come, this divides to £6 each, or £3/hr.

Now you know how much it costs for this activity, it is entirely up to you how much you wish to contribute!

Playing with fire is dangerous. By coming to this space, we expect you to be respectful, safe and careful, to yourself, others and the environment. You will be responsible for your own activity here, and you take part and watch at your own risk.
