Attention Women Firefighters – Tell your story!

The Women Firefighter Narrative Visibility Project (WFNVP) knows that women firefighters are making a difference in our communities every day.

This is your chance to share your experience – standout or workaday events or moments from the field, the community, or the fire hall. Together we’ll shape the stories that you want to tell into short narrative written or recorded art pieces — audio, visual, written or digital.

You don’t have to have any artistic experience. You will be led through the whole process by the professional artists from Red Dress Productions.
