UPDATE (May 18, 2010)
ORIGINAL (May 15, 2010)
I am calling out to anyone who would be interested in sharing an origin story
in the future as part of my Evokation project. More details will follow but for now, the foundation of the project rests on others' openness to share the history of an issue important in their lives and/or community.
This requires no commitment right now other than saying you are interested. And in the future, if the Evokation is accepted, your involvement would include any of the possible scenarios:
a) Sharing an issue you are knowledgeable or passionate about
b) Doing research and/or interviewing others in your area about the issue
and/or c) Contributing images, video, or writings on the issue
In turn, the stories will be developed into short doc**entaries. In total, these origin stories will be of individuals, places, organizations, communities, businesses, ideas, beliefs, movements, conflicts, successes, etc. meant to bring to the surface awareness, understanding, and inspiration not just to the individuals, communities, or nations directly involved, but the wh*** world.
So, if you would be interested down the road in contributing a story, just comment below with a simple yes, and I will gauge how to proceed based on peoples' interest.
Note: To clarify, you are not committing to this being your Evokation. In other words, you will be acting as the living library of knowledge for the stories and will be credited as part of the films, but you won't have to worry about any of the details in running the project, etc. If you are interested in taking a more active role, though, just let me know.
In particular, if you are a graphic artist (or are good at drawing in any capacity) or a musician that would be interested in contributing to the doc**entaries, I would love to hear from you.
