Eddie Bauer presents the Live Your Adventure Film series. We’re partnering with previous One Outside Film Grant winners Erin Joy Nash & Sanjana Sekhar of Brave Space Media to highlight four Eddie Bauer partners who are tapping into the healing power of outdoor recreation to nourish themselves, their communities, and our planet.
Live Your Adventure
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.
