We are so excited to launch our Audio Story Showcase on homelessness with stories from four different perspectives: a homeless man, a concerned citizen, a woman working with a non-profit serving the homeless community, and an official in Nevada County charged with finding solutions.
Watch for weekly stories from others walking in life from these different views.
Our goal is to capture and creatively share stories about homelessness in Nevada County, California, via spoken and written word, film/video, fine art, and music.
Story connects us to our humanity, and when arts and media communicate Story, there is opportunity for creative collaborative solutions to problems and cultural transformation.
Dave Isay, in his StoryCorp Project, learned from his 2015 listener surveys that 81% of those who listen to stories are reminded of shared humanity. When we hear meaningful “real life” situations people are dealing with, it helps us understand the universality of the human condition.
We all have the same needs, and use many different strategies to meet those needs. Common humanity evolves when we pause on judging those strategies, and see the person behind the exterior shell.
Let us tell you a little bit about our first four guests:
