Firefly Arts Collective is a 501(c) non-profit that has helped to foster art and community through its interactive, multi-day, outdoor arts and culture event held annually over 4th of July weekend. Inspired by the principles of Burning Man, and rooted in creative individual participation, the annual Firefly event is recognized as an official Burning Man regional. Firefly Arts Collective is actively trying to create a year-round influence in the greater Boston Area by collaborating with local artists to create events that promote its' values.
Our 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.
We are proud to participate in Somerville Open Studios in 2014 at the new Firefly Gallery hosted by Velir in Davis Square.
