How to Build a Fire: Where are you going?
STORYTELLERS: Aimee Rose Ranger Wendy Lee Vazquez Jennifer Chowdhury Abigail Conklin Created five years ago, How to Build a Fire is a community storytelling series where a diverse group of individuals share real-life, personal narratives centered around a different theme each month. At times funny, at times sad, their stories weave together a broad illustration of the human experience. How to Build a Fire takes place at Open Source Gallery -a welcoming, nurturing, intimate, safe environment- where, monthly, one can see a new exhibition installed by an array of up-and-coming and established visual artists. Every year, poet and event founder Terence Degnan partners with Open Source Gallery to select two new co-hosts/curators of “HTBAF.” This year’s curators are poet Shafina Ahmed and comedian Laura Merli.

What we're about

Open Source is a place where art and community come together. Impacted by the open source movement—which promotes freely shared, educational software and information—Open Source applies a similar philosophy to create an approachable space, dedicated to the accessibility of contemporary art. Our programming includes monthly exhibitions, lectures, storytelling, dinners, and community programs. We also offer kids workshops that explore the intersection of art, technology, and the environment. Join us for good conversation--whether it’s during an exhibit, over dinner, through a workshop, or just for fun!
