@TyIsI Somewhat short notice (2 weeks?) but I’d love to take you up on your offer of organizing a night at Hack Space and co-host with my partner in crime who’s coming to town mid-Month.
We thought we could offer an open chat / Q&A night re working with the Fire Art Safety Team to bring Fire Art to Burning Man, starting by talking about our own projects and experiences and opening the floor to questions.
Two-second resume: I’ve volunteered with F.A.S.T. since 2012 and am currently part of the team that oversees Flame Effects coming to the event. Carly (my pyro partner) and I brought Open Fire, Flame Effects and Pyro for Mazu: Goddess of the Empty Sea in 2015. Previous to that I worked on Temple 2011, the Pier 2 and was the Burn Lead on Embrace.
Read VHS’ ‘Hosting an Event’ blurb but am keen to chat more about how to host.
The best night for us would be April 16, which I see would be an Open Night from 730 onwards. Perhaps we could lead with our talk? 6 or 7 pm and stick around to chat if there is interest?
