ABCD - Getting Started/Challenges
We just recieved a grant for a story telling project we are calling "unsung heroes." We are using a combination of audio recordings which we are collecting during our asset mapping process along with still photo's of the residents in phase one of the project. Our goal is 30 interviews with long-time residents and we are sharing short 30-60 second snippets. Then we are going to pick 6 "unsung heroes" and do a more involved interview that will end up being a professionally recorded oral history. Then we are going to turn it all into a play and write a theme song that will be recorded in a local recording studio. So, I can use your prayers and will be checking out all of the great resources named above. We have never done anything like this and have no idea how it will turn out. We did a tiny little pilot of just the audio/image videos (you can view them here: http://embracerichmond.org/wise-guides-listening-project/. Oh yeah, forgot to mention, we are training youth in how to do the interviews and they are selecting the heroes. So, lots of moving peices and parts but we are excited.
