2012 Fire and Ice Benefit

The Gateway Burners and Arch Reactor are teaming up for the second year in a row to present 'Fire and Ice'. This fundraising event will take place on January 21, 2012 at the William A. Kerr Foundation Building at 21 O’Fallon Street, Saint Louis, MO 63102. The event runs from 7:00 pm until Midnight and is for ages 21 and up. Each group will be present to host correlative activities and entertainment as well as provide information about their organizations. The event will be $10 per person. Tickets will be sold at the door.

The purpose of ‘Fire and Ice’ is to raise money for GAS (Gateway Art Support), which provides art grants and funding for the upcoming 2012 Gateway Burn, as well as funding for Arch Reactor’s upcoming projects and innovations. This unusual event is a collaboration of Burner culture and creative technical artistry that promises to be an exciting and welcome reprieve from the frigid Midwest winter. 

The Gateway Burners will sponsor a Chili Cook-off at the event, as well as host a costume contest based on the ‘Fire and Ice’ theme. Arch Reactor will host an Art/Tech auction and present demonstrations from some of their recent designs and innovations. There will also be a silent auction containing art and other submissions from community members from both organizations.  

Gateway Burners is a Saint Louis based organization that was created in 2006 to foster radical self expression through art and participation and encourage civic responsibility and sustainable community through it’s yearly events. Arch Reactor is a Saint Louis based DIY/Maker/Hackerspace created in 2009 that utilizes technology, programming and ingenuity to foster the spirit of community in the creation of their many projects and inventions. The proceeds of the ‘Fire and Ice’ event will mutually benefit and support the progress of both of these organizations.
