Learn more about Signal Fire Residency trips in 2017! Signal Fire 2017 programs look to the role of storytelling in understanding land. Naming and shaping places, building connection and claiming ownership, and writing the histories of contested landscapes depend on stories. This year’s trips will visit seven regions of the West, each one culturally and geographically distinct, and each one shaped by competing narratives.
Participants will be invited to share stories from their own lives and cultures and we will ask ourselves how artists, as storytellers, can contribute to a collective history of the land that acknowledges past injustice and contributes to a more equitable and resilient future.
