Peak Moment 152: The Placemeant Project: Stories of Why “Where” Matters



Kate Magruder feels that "Opinions make walls. Stories make bridges." Using narrative, music and images, Placement Project participants create short stories that not only empower the tellers, but also elicit respect, admiration and tenderness from listeners. Kate hopes that telling our stories can build an honest sense of community in her town of Ukiah and beyond. Watch some digital stories at http://www.storymapping.org/placemeant.html.
