There are two parts to this project that we are excited to share with you.
Give Ear is a combination of writing, video, photography, art, community, and seeking stories worth telling in our city and world.
The definition of Give Ear is to hear, to listen with intention. We hope Give Ear will be a space for people to listen to and connect with stories of people with diverse backgrounds and life experiences. We are seeking out people in the community making a difference and sharing their platforms.
We would love your input!
This is the heartbeat of this dream.
Mosaic means a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile, or glass.
People. Stories. Community changers. Dreamers. Helpers. Difference makers.
So often what we consume online is loud, divisive, and discouraging.
We hope Give Ear will subtly critique how we engage with social media and offer a better way.
Instead of living in our echo chambers and using this space to share opinions or exclusively provide life updates, we will be sharing stories of people having an impact on our city. We hope it finds you well!
Our journal will contain stories and ideas that rally around the mission of Give Ear: to listen, to hear with intent. We will share raw stories with this in mind, in hopes of capturing the need for listen and see through the labels, beyond the categories... and to the heart. We are hoping to feature many different writers in our blog as well. If you are interested in writing a piece for Give Ear or know someone who is, please reach out to us!
