Detroit Future Media Workshops presents: We Tell Our Own Story
This is the second installation of the free-of-charge, bi-weekly Saturday Speaker Series.
We Tell Our Own Story is an open workshop and discussion focusing on independent voices working against the mainstream to get stories from their communities heard. We’ll examine the power of storytelling in film, video, and alternative media to bring people together – as a platform for empowerment. Our panelists will go through the storytelling process, from the initial creative seed, to production, distribution, and all the love and pain along the way.
Featured speakers include:
• Rola Nashef (Director, Producer, Screenwriter – Detroit Unleaded)
• Dream Hampton (Journalist, Documentary Filmmaker – Black August)
• Rachel Falcone (Oral Historian, Multimedia Artist- Housing is a Human Right project)
