About usFor 14 years, Fire has grown as a unique organization for cutting edge artistic expression and individual leadership development, especially for people most marginalized in Kalamazoo. Often, people name Fire as their “safe space,” amidst a world that oppresses people based on marginalized identities of race, gender and sexuality. Fire was cofounded in 2005 by Dr. Michelle Johnson and Denise Miller. Michelle Johnson describes her time at Fire, “...as an extension of my 25-year insistence on space for marginalized people to express their autonomous and authentic selves." Denise Miller is a published poet and has lead public art, poetry and culinary arts programming at Fire.
