Cool news: mixtape1285 was recently featured on the official TED-Ed Blog! Click here to check out the post – it features a 10-step guide to DIY a StoryCorps booth at your school. The post pretty much says it all, but if you’re in search of a TL/DR, here’s the gist: mixtape1285 is a student storytelling initiative. Students interview friends or relatives, and they share stories in the sound studio. Participants receive a full copy of the interview (crazy good sound quality) and I trim out portions to put online for everyone to enjoy. The goals: build empathy and foster an environment where everyone’s voice matters. Check it out, and contact me with questions if you’re looking to give this a shot.
