Community Voice Lab has partnered with AU’s Humanities Truck to take the 2019 Community Voice Film Series into the community. This Fall, our Community Voice fellows are using the truck to host three free screening events at local DC non-profits. The truck will exhibit the Community Voice short film series in an outdoor, public location, making it completely accessible to locals. Several DC storytellers featured in the films will speak after each screening to help deepen community bonds and create an authentic community experience. In addition, after every screening, the team will host a live talkback with stakeholders from each community to receive feedback on viewer responses to the stories. Our first event took place at Next Step Charter School in Columbia Heights.
