Outpost II, Mt Hood

July 10-16, 2016
Unwalking The West
Type of Trip:

Signal Fire is excited to host the eighth year of the Outpost Residency near our base in Portland. The Cascades boast some of our best known and most visited public lands. They also continue to be heavily logged and remain at threat from off-road vehicle abuse, mining, and energy development. Outpost offers a self-directed week to rest, reflect, research, and make new work.Artists are provided with food, maps, and a magnificent 12x12 canvas wall tent for work and sleep space. The tents are equipped with a desk, cot, and rug for a comfortable camping experience, as well as kitchen utensils and food for self-prepared breakfast and lunch. Each tent is set apart from the others, but within a short walk to a base camp. Signal Fire organizers are stationed at the base camp, available for emergency and unforeseen needs. The group gathers for dinner each evening, served by Signal Fire at base camp.Although we strive to create a comfortable experience, the nature of the project means artists should be prepared for unpredictable weather and camping conditions. There are no bathrooms or running water, but we do provide a pair of deep cycle batteries for charging cameras, laptops, etc. Aside from registered service animals, no pets are permitted. Participants are responsible for their own travel to and from Portland, Oregon. Signal Fire can assist in support of grant applications or visas, and we encourage international and collaborative applications. Children are welcome but pets (aside from registered service animals) are not. Artists applying with collaborators or children should plan to share a single tent.Participants: Lisa Hirmer, Matice Moore, Adam Neese,Zhaoyu Zhang
