250 Years:250 People is a project about community and how art, photography, storytelling, and media can all intersect to help open up new lines of communication as well as document important moments in time. We are trying to raise the money required to create:
*Dedicated website which will feature audio stories, video, and photos of 250+ Vermonters
*Short documentary film on the process of creating the project with subject interviews.
*Gallery show on Main Street in Windsor with the option to travel statewide.
*An multimedia ePub edition available in Apple’s iBook and for other e-readers.
*Digital archive of the project presented to the Windsor Library & Vermont State Archives
And while the project is centered on Windsor, the themes of community, economics, history, and culture are universal. We really think people will find this project engaging far beyond the borders of this town.
We need your help in these last few hours to make it happen. If we do not reach our goal on Kickstarter, we do not receive any of the pledged funding so far--it is an all or nothing proposal. So please share the links, take five minutes to watch the video and review our project, and become a backer if you can. Pledge levels start at $1 and there are great rewards at every level of funding.
Thanks so much to all who have participated so far--we look forward to making this project something great!
