Live Your Adventure

Kayla, Tyrhee, Kisha, and Samara, the four explorers in this year’s Live Your Adventure series, show us how they live their adventures by leaning into the outdoors as a space to heal, nourish, and reconnect with themselves, their communities. and our planet.

Tyrhee’s Community

Eddie Bauer Guide Tyhree Moore shares how getting outside as a child changed his life. But as he grew older, he became more and more aware of a lack of racial diversity in the outdoors. That’s why Tyrhee founded Soul Trak Outdoors – a non-profit organization based in the Washington D.C. area that helps people of color connect with outdoor spaces and find healing in community.

Kisha’s Power

Kisha is a Black storyteller, producer, director, and adventurer. When an autoimmune disease caused mobility issues in her young adulthood, she actively sought movement as a form of healing. This brought her to the outdoors, and sparked a passion to explore and challenge stereotypes about what it means to be an adventurer. She’s currently working on a documentary called, “Black Girl In The Woods,” a chronicle of her’s and others’ journey to reclaim space in nature. When she isn’t enjoying the great outdoors, she’s in her kitchen in Manhattan (on traditional Lenape land) baking up something delicious.

About the Filmmakers

Brave Space Media is a multi-racial, women-led, radically collaborative creative team dedicated to stories of healing that uplift traditionally underrepresented voices. Brave Space’s founder Erin Joy Nash is a visual storyteller working to incite change and foster connection through filmmaking and photography. Her work focuses on elevating voices of womxn and BIPOC around issues of intersectional feminism, antiracism, environmental justice, and compassionate living. Collaborative partner and co-director Sanjana Sekhar is an Indian-American filmmaker, climate action communicator, and outdoor wanderer. Her work seeks to amplify character-driven stories that heal our human relationships to ourselves, each other, and our planet, with a specific interest in socio-ecological justice, ancestral knowledge, and systems of re-nourishment. Together, the team prioritizes imagining, learning, and co-creating a decolonizing approach to filmmaking.

Land Acknowledgement and Land Back Location Fee

These films were created on ancestral lands of displaced peoples. Moving beyond simply land acknowledgment, Brave Space Media practices a commitment of 5% of a project’s budget to local #landback initiatives or similar Indigenous-led initiatives that directly support local tribal nations. Traditionally on a film production, filmmakers will budget for the costs of location permitting or renting studios and venues for filming. Brave Space Media wants to encourage all storytellers to consider the land and her stewards as part of the creative ecosystem, to dig deeper into what reciprocity truly looks like, and to continue learning more about how the industry can participate in reparations for stolen land.
