The MFC is SEEKING: Fire Dancers, Safety Crew, and Drummers for Burning Man 2014! Come be a part of this amazing crew! All are welcome!
The Minneapolis Fire Collective (MFC) is in its 7th year! For the past 6 years, the MFC has jumped through flaming hoops for the honor of performing in the Great Circle for the Fire Conclave at Burning Man, and we should do it again!
The MFC Open Call meeting is for information only, and all are welcome to attend! This meeting will cover our history, new ideas, and the requirements for MFC 2014, and if you wish to be any part of it, you should attend. About a month after this meeting, there will be a commitment meeting where you actually sign up, so you get some time to think about it.
A few things to know before you even bother coming to Open Call: To be a part of the MFC, you MUST commit to attending Burning Man 2014, you must attend a certain number of weekly rehearsals (likely Thursday evenings, April and May), and you should have some level of experience in your role.
At Open Call you will get a list of ALL the requirements, a tentative full schedule, and plenty of information. Please don't call or email me directly, as I simply don't have the time to tell 50 individuals the whole story... this is why there is a group meeting, so I only have to explain it all once! If you have a general question about this meeting, please post it to this event page, as others may have the same question. Thanks for your understanding and self-reliance! Figure it out... consider this your 1st required Thursday. :) Please be on time. Thanks!
Finally, yes, as you may have heard correctly, after this year, I will be taking a year off from leading the MFC, to take a break, and maybe be done forever! Or I might miss it too much and will have to do it again! We'll see! To say I'm just quitting is just too painful, so for now, we're going to call it a "break." So yeah, this could be the last year! More info on this, and my year off, at Open Call.
