During 2018, Shasta County was impacted by multiple wildfires that claimed lives, devastated the land and displaced thousands of people, forever altering their sense of place. In the months that followed, residents of Redding, CA reached out to ART from the ashes to collaborate on a creative platform to support the recovery process of the community. Throughout 2019 AFTA will work with a team of local volunteers and organizations to help provide emotional catharsis though art programming.

Local artists will work with materials that have been reclaimed from fire site locations in Shasta County and also donated by the North Zone Fire Cache to bring together art, regional ecology and fire science to provide a gateway for community engagement.

The ART from the ashes Seeds of Regrowth Shasta County support effort will include: art workshops for both children and adults, interactive art installations and will culminate in a large scale exhibition in the fall of 2019 featuring individual works and collaborative art installations from regional artists. Additional programming will include artist demos, panel discussions and workshops with a focus on art, environment and fire ecology.

Proceeds from the Seeds of Regrowth exhibition will benefit the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area’s regeneration and recovery efforts.
