Hello! May I help you?
We collaborate with leaders seeking:
1. Communications strategies
2. Cultural competency
3. Discovering stories
Communications strategies: We look at your messaging and find new ways to make your stories and language work better for you. We help you align the who, what, where, and why of your external and internal communications. Strategies can include writing, research, social media, editorials, publicity, events, curation, media productions, audience development; identify key persons, organizations for connections. We direct photo shoots, produce short films, demo reels, promotional, corporate communications videos.
Cultural competency: We lead, moderate multicultural workshops on the topics of Race, Gender, Age and Privilege. We are trained facilitators. Our popular workshop ‘Reconciling the Harms of Slavery’ uses Coming to the Table guidelines. We teach groups ‘How-to Be Better Allies’ by screening amazing films, employing Circle Process, Deep Dialogue, and Talking Sticks, as inspired by Native American traditions.
We also build community through food. I often write about food history, cooking, and gardening. My specialties are Southern Creole, Caribbean, Diaspora, Afro-Asian cuisine and recipe development. As food activists, we plant urban gardens in poverty areas. We set-up crowdfunding pages to help identify volunteer teachers, students, supporters. Women’s Reinvention, Empowerment – We believe you are creative and victorious at every age! We produce multi-generational women’s events, hire speakers, venues, and identify sponsors for networking and transformation.
Discover your stories: Finding your true voice is every writer’s greatest struggle. It’s a personal journey. What makes you and your story unique? How do you stand out? Do you want to change your story? We help you build your brand or re-brand.
Personal Historian: We are dedicated to preserving stories about your life and ordinary people. We assist with oral history interviews, genealogical and archival research. Your ancestors passed down unique gifts to you. Your life-work and mission developed many of your stories. We help you pull it all together. We help you to write your script. We transform your visual mementos such as photos, letters, cards, and news clips into a film or multimedia presentation.
Community: Our volunteers help under-served populations, especially the elderly, veterans, domestic violence survivors, mentally ill, and homeless persons. Please donate on our Contact page to help us serve more community projects.
