Stories of Change- Antoine Haywood
Whether it’s building skills for jobs or learning how to make media to overcome a disability, many people get involved in community media to experience some form of transformation. This birds of a feather session is a designated time for community media practitioners to exchange and record short stories about personal and social transformations they have witnessed through community-based media making. The primary goal of this activity is to begin building a current archive of narratives that exemplify the social impact qualities of our work.
