WHERE THERE IS SMOKE
The Women Firefighter Narrative Visibility Project

An interactive, audio installation featuring women firefighters’ stories of standout and workaday moments from the community and the fire hall; a multi-dimensional portrait of career and volunteer firefighters with a diverse range of experiences and perspectives on camaraderie, fire science, training, and being one (or a few) amongst many.

In a series of arts-based workshops and interviews in Toronto, Hamilton, and throughout Southern Ontario, 30+ women firefighters, with 1 to 25 years of experience, engaged with artists from Red Dress Productions to craft the stories that are the root of this exhibition.

Red Dress Productions led thi...s arts engagement project, a partnership with Fire Service Women Ontario. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Toronto Professional Fire Fighters' Association, the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre, the Toronto Arts Council, and the Ontario Arts Council — Conseil des arts de l'Ontario.

Red Dress Productions is a professional arts organization that works with/in communities to create interdisciplinary art, performance, and visual public artworks. Red Dress Productions artists: Anna Camilleri, Tristan R Whiston, Wy Joung Kou, and Aidan Morishita-Miki.
