The Ground Shots Podcast

Oct 6, 2018

Episode Five of the Ground Shots Podcast.

A conversation with artist Ryan Pierce out of Portland, Oregon on the work of the organization Signal Fire, which aims to connect artists and activists to wild spaces through unique programming.


We talk about: 



How Signal Fire started, it's mission and evolution as a unique non-profit that blends wilderness retreats, artist residencies and environmental activism together. 

How Signal Fire navigates inclusivity and relevancy for many different communities in their programming from Ryan's perspective.

The different programs Signal Fire offers.

How Signal Fire weaves a wide range of stories and perspectives about the land and our relationship to it in their programming, and how this ignites and inspires artists and activists to re-think what the face of environmentalism looks like.


Non-hierarchal models of running organizations/non-profits.
