We had a great meeting where we started to get to know the collective experience we bring to the room, brainstorm some new projects and share our ongoing projects.
Many new ideas were shared, including a campaign using gifs, games using geo-caching, hip hop health education initiatives, and a lot more! — and of course we talked a bit about our ongoing social media, podcasts, media literacy game, and video projects.
Here’s a brief, partial rundown of the experiences people shared:
- podcast production (a few of us!)
- radio production (also more than one!)
- educational media
- turning a college newspaper into a broader media team
- being a teacher! creating curricula
- freelance documentary filmmaking
- professional radio news reporter and show host
- magazine writer
- graphic design
- video and sound editing
- and others: writing, filmmaking, screenwriting, photography sound production and more!
Here’s a brief, partial list of some of the ideas for this year people shared:
