The FirePony Community Art and Civic Engagement Program strives to support artists and organizations around the mid-Atlantic region year-round in their efforts to develop innovative, collaborative, community-focused art and civic engagement projects. See the CACE Overview.

We encourage artists and organizations that share a passion for the burner ethos and demonstrate a commitment to bringing participatory, interactive art, or forward-thinking collaborative projects to their communities to apply. Learn more about the CACE Grant Program here

FirePony Creative Society is a volunteer-run organization. Together we build and strengthen our amazing community through collaborative efforts, in which we celebrate and encourage experiments in the creation of art and develop a culture of play. All of our events, community activities, and grant programs happen because incredible volunteers like you step forward and help make them a reality. Whether you want to help out by volunteering at an event or to join an artist’s team, or would like to stretch your leadership legs by joining a planning team or the organization’s board of directors, we invite you to reach out! Our community is large and growing, and we can help point you in the right direction.  Email
