As our country faces the greatest threat to public lands in its history, Wild Home takes an odyssey across rural America by traveling to fifteen wilderness areas significantly pressured by oil and gas development. In each town, co-founders of the program, Ashley Teague and Jessica Kahkoska, partner with local community to hold public story-sharing events. Shared testimony is then crafted into original plays that are performed by community and professional actors in outdoor spaces and interspersed with facilitated dialogue about efforts in community to protect wildlands. The program explores and deepens the conversation around protecting wilderness spaces at a grassroots level and on a national, policymaker scale.
