If a picture is worth a thousand words, then is a video worth a million?
Whether on our TVs, a movie screen, computers, or smart phones… videos are everywhere. The ability to convey an emotional message quickly is unparalleled and one we’ve tried to incorporate into more of our work at The Conversation Project. Join us for our free monthly community call on Wednesday, January 20th to learn about two new video resources with ties to The Conversation Project.
First, you’ll hear from the makers of a new PBS documentary, Nine to Ninety. This touching video is a wonderful tribute to a multi-generational family as they dive into difficult conversations and decisions. Now airing around the country, the film makers will join us to share more about the documentary itself, as well as how you can get involved with local screenings, hosting events, and online discussion groups. (They’ve even created a video of family members using The Conversation Project Conversation Starter Kit!)
Additionally, we’ll share information about 12 videos created to show different scenarios for having the conversation. Created by the Take Charge of Your Life Partnership, these videos will now live on the Community Resource Center. Many of you asked for examples of videos showing different scenarios where someone may have the conversation, or conversations between different groups (friends, family, men, women…) and we hope these videos fit the bill.
As always, we’ll share other news and updates from the TCP team so you can plan for community introductions in your region. We’re looking forward to connecting, hearing your questions and updates, and learning about any video resources you’d recommend!
