We collaborate with leaders seeking:
1. Communications strategies
2. Cultural competency
3. Food & History
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, and connections to people. We direct photo shoots, produce short films, and corporate communications videos. We coordinate special events.
Cultural competency: We moderate multicultural workshops on slavery, racism, age, poverty, 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.
Food: We build community through food history, cooking demonstrations, unique dining experiences, family recipes, and gardening. My specialties are healthy Southern Creole, Caribbean, Diaspora, and Afro-Asian cuisines. As food activists, we assist with urban gardens in poverty areas. We set-up crowdfunding pages and help identify volunteer teachers, students, supporters.
Historian, archivist: We are dedicated to preserving stories about your life and the lives of extraordinary people. We assist with oral history interviews, genealogy and archival research. We help you pull all of your files together. We write your script and mount exhibits. We transform your personal and professional mementos such as photos, letters, cards, photos, videos, recordings and news clips into films, multimedia, library or museum presentations.
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.
