Things Are Happening!

Posted by on September 14th, 2010 § 0

Oh yes they are!  The Listening Project had a great turnout at the activities fair: sign-ups spilled onto a second page!  This is Haverford, though, so of course, now I have to start badgering the people on the list to make time in their busy schedules.  It will happen, though — always does.

Next mission: Plan focus groups!  The goal of a Listening Project focus group is just to start a dialogue about the project, to talk about the goals, and of course, to determine what interests people the most.  If this project isn’t accessible to the community, it will likely crash and burn.  Not that I want to foreshadow anything (we just talked about tragic irony in my senior sem, so it’s on the brain).  If you’re interested in participating in a focus group: speak up!  Feel free to post a comment here or email me: thogarth@haverford.edu

Sometimes most unexpected ideas can produce broad results when executed simply.  Case in point: the How Are You Doing Project (found courtesy of Yesterday Was Not Dull)

FAQs!

Check out the sweet new FAQ page (i.e. the only page with any content right now).  I bet I read your mind!  When we get back to school, I’m going to need some help building content for some of the other pages.  Since this project hinges on student participation, I’d love to get some additional opinions before I post the official recording procedure on the How-to page.

On the bright side: I think I’ve finally found the perfect tape recorders.  Now I just have to wait for them to be back in stock!

Here We Go

I would say, “Hello  world!” but it looks like that’s been taken care of.  After a long summer hibernation, I am ready to attempt to engage with the English language yet again.  So far so good, I think: capital letters, punctuation, clauses.

Anyway, here it is: The Listening Project.  Over the course of the next semester this blog will become the home of Haverford’s latest (only ever?) campus-wide radio storytelling project… and hopefully a few more authors.  In the coming days/weeks/months (!), we’ll be sharing our progress, posting links to other cool radio projects, and letting you know how you can get involved.  As you may have noticed, the links in the sidebar don’t connect to much useful information at the moment, so we’ll be taking care of that as well.  Mission: Next = Mission Statement!  Stay tuned.

And while you wait, don’t touch that dial; touch this instead: StoryCorps.

Where Am I?
