Mentioned in the NY Times in January 2012 Free Ignition was created in 2008 by Ms Phoenix and has quickly become the biggest fire spinning community in all of NY. It's name was changed in 2011 to Free Ignition from Got Fire by Vulcan Crew Members Noel Yee & Jordan Campbell along with Phoenix Feeley.
What started as the bi-monthly fire jam began meeting weekly due to popular demand and now commences on most Thursdays (weather pending). Stay informed on these weekly Free Ignition events and on other fire and spin jam related meet ups throughout NYC by joining the group. With a network of over 1100 NYC and world wide fire and flow artists ranging from beginner to professional the group reaches a large portion of the local community or visiting artists. The group provides safety information, advertisement for gigs, a forum for advice, a way to connect with other fire connoisseurs, and much more.
Free Ignition has become the most useful groups to be connected with if you are a fire spinner in the tri-state area or visiting the Big Apple from across the globe. The free of charge renegade outside meet-ups focus on safety, rehearsing, training, teaching, and learning in various locations. It historically meets up at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo, at the Amphitheater and the the Sun in the East River Park, or Union Square in Manhattan from 9pm-MN.
