This project will use a live performance by Faultline Ensemble to reimagine the public and municipal spaces of fire and ambulance stations as sites for collective trauma recognition and healing. Incorporating a live performance, interactive discussions and a series of participatory workshops, Counting Pebbles will work with rural emergency medical responders, their families, and their communities to acknowledge and process the mental health toll of emergency rescue work. Drawing on firsthand stories gathered from responders over the past four years and created by artists, emergency responders and health workers, this collaboration will create public space for traumas typically buried and unrecognized.
