Fire Sculpture - Invitation to Artists

Application deadline extended to Friday, December 6, 2019.

For the 30th anniversary of Silver Skate Festival we will be creating a new Folk Trail story. Although the story will only be fully unveiled at the festival we encourage Fire Sculpture teams to work with this thematic for inspiration.

In our quest through life we all occasionally face a battle with darkness. Sometimes we become lost in the dark. Am I good enough? Can I conquer my fear of failure? This journey from darkness to light asks how we can regain our voice, to sing once again.

We are going to feature individual teams of fire artists on 6 different evenings during the festival on February 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16, 2020. Fire Artists are invited to submit their ideas or vision of a Fire Show for the festival. This year a new story will be unveiled and we encourage teams to work with the theme but any awesome fire sculpture will be considered. For the talented fire artist that have participated at previous festivals, we encourage you to dig deeper within the story to find new imagery to inspire your fire sculpture in 2020.

Location and Dates of the Competition
The 12th annual Silver Skate Fire Sculpture Installation will take place at Hawrelak Park in Edmonton during the Silver Skate Festival, Friday February 7th, Saturday February 8th, Sunday February 9th, plus Friday February 14th, Saturday February 15th, and Sunday February 16th, 2020.

An Artist Fee of $1000 will be given to each team invited to participate in the competition.
