Sundance Stories of Change Impact Lab
While at YouthBuild USA, I participated in an initiative from the Skoll Foundation and the Sundance Institute designed to offer a forum for social entrepreneurs, innovators, and artists to find the areas where their work intersects and to devise strategies to expand the impact and reach of their work through more effective use of traditional and trans-media storytelling. I spent 1-week in an intensive lab experience collaborating on digital strategy to elevate the voices and realities of opportunity youth. Our team presented our work on the final day to an audience of funders.
Within months we were able to secure $10,000 in seed funding for deeper research into our proposed platform.
Over the course of the next year, I conducted stakeholder interviews and surveys and worked with a design strategist to produce a vision document for a mobile story telling platform and campaign, to be shopped around by the organization.
