27 NEW RaceBridges VIDEOS PUBLISHED

OVER 200 STORYTELLER VIDEOS NOW IN THE RACEBRIDGES COLLECTION!

Techny IL. Derek Simons SVD through Bridges ministry at Techny has produced 27 new storyteller videos. The videos are original short stories about race relations, diversity and inclusion. Simons worked with creative partner Susan O’Halloran and CVP Productions in Kansas City shooting original stories by professional storytellers from around the U.S. and overseas. Post production and online work was completed by Capture Hits Inc.

The slate of new productions now increases the RaceBridges collection to the significant milestone of 213 videos. All the videos can be accessed on RaceBridgesStudio.com. Each of the videos have transcripts which are also downloadable. Brief descriptions of the 27 stories can be seen on the next page as well as photographs of the storytellers.

Derek Simons said of these videos : “These true stories contain much pain and challenge. They contain many tears of sorrow. But they also contain tears of laughter and much redemptive dignity.”

The videos are being placed on a variety of social media, on the online platform of the National Storytelling Network and also via the professional live and online outreach of the storytellers.

These short online stories provide ideal springboards for discussion starters for groups and individuals exploring race relations and interculturality. They easily fit a variety of local contexts and needs. Difference & Belonging is an online guide to the themes of all the video stories. It can be found on the RaceBridgesStudio.com Home Page.

In addition to the video collection there are hundreds of texts, ideas and lesson plans on the site that explore race relations and diversity.
