Big Stories Small Towns is a multi-platform process-driven documentary project that works with communities to create micro documentaries, photography and digital stories. At the heart of Big Stories is a question - can you have both community ownership through process and a high-quality media product at the same time? In communication for social change literature, the discourse of participation has in many ways remained rigid while practice continues to evolve to meet audience and participant expectations. As process-driven media projects reach broadcast scale and quality, a more intimate and nuanced understanding of the co-creative process is needed.By: Samantha RyanPosted: August 16, 2015 (0) Comments (0) Like
