In the first few weeks of October, wildfires ravaged Northern California towns — leaving chaos, loss and grief in its wake. Many artists, musicians and makers lost everything. A few have used their artistic talents toward recovery and healing.

We're looking for stories of creatives impacted by the fires and of artists who are using their skills to help communities heal in the face of incredible loss.

If you were impacted by the fires, or know someone who was, we'd like to hear from you.
