How to Build a Fire enters its third season of storytelling at Open Source Gallery in South Slope, Brooklyn. With its focus on diverse and engaging voices, its intimate venue, and its welcoming of first-time and amateur storytellers, How to Build a Fire sets itself apart from other storytelling series. Here, we seek connection, not craft— stories are told not from scripts but from memories. Karen Stevenson and Matt Barbehenn, the hosts for the third season, are looking for voices of all ages and origins to share their true, unscripted, unmemorized stories for the How to Build a Fire audience.

How to Build a Fire occurs every last Friday of the month at Open Source Gallery from 8-10. 306 17th Street, Brooklyn, NY

Sheba Legend

How To Build A Fire is a storytelling series set within the visually surprising, kinetic, and energized space of Open Source Gallery. The series is the brainchild of the poet Terence Degnan, who for a year, curated and hosted countless storytellers from all walks of life while inviting guest curators along the way to help to diversify the voices. He has passed on the curatorial and hosting duties to his friends and colleagues Kate Hill Cantrill and Dennis Norris and they intend to maintain the spontaneous mix of characters, themes, ideas, while opening up the series to include musical, visual, and other creative ways of enhancing the art of telling a story.

For the final installment of Season 2, storytellers have been invited to explore the theme “Flying Shoes.” Storytellers will include some of the curators’ favorites from the past year.
