RacebridgesStudio.com is an online site that explores diversity and race relations through sharing video stories by professional tellers. To date, it offers over 200 videos and transcripts covering themes of identity, bullying, immigration, interfaith, the civil rights movement and peacemaking just to name a few. A video guide with story synopsis, discussion questions and additional resources is free to download from the site.
Three different times we videotaped NSN storytellers at NSN annual conferences. The NSN staff helped us contact contributing tellers and generously guided tellers to our video studio in the conference hotels. For years, we have advertised in the membership magazine and on the NSN site to let people know of this free resource. NSN also alerted members and story lovers to our first ever online storytelling festival featuring these social justice video stories. With NSN’s help, we had a Facebook reach of over 112,000 people in over 50 countries.
NSN is a big reason the video stories exist. The videos are among the 28,000 items of content downloaded from the site each month. NSN has helped us fulfill our mission of providing respectful conversations and building community through shared stories.
