The Lifeboat Project's curator insight, October 14, 2013 10:16 AM

"Russia is dying. Much has been written about the country's demographic crisis—the declining population, the low birth rate, the life expectancy that puts the country on par with the world's poorest—but bleak as those figures are, they don't yet include masses of people dying as a result of the country's HIV/AIDS epidemic. The World Bank estimates that in 2020, Russia will lose 20,000 people per month to AIDS."

2013 Nobel Prize in Literature Laureate Alice Munro on the Secret of a Great Story

2013 Nobel Prize in Literature Laureate Alice Munro on the Secret of a Great Story | Storytelling in the Digital Age | Scoop.it
“A story … has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you.”

The question
Anca Toader's insight:

Beautiful: "A story is not like a road to follow … it’s more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you." (Alice Munro)

Graying of AIDS

The Lifeboat Project's curator insight, October 24, 2013 6:16 PM

"By 2015 more than half of all people living with HIV in the US will be over 50.

It doesn’t matter how old you are: anyone can become infected with HIV. Thanks to advances in medical treatment, people are living longer with the virus—in some cases more than 20 years (and counting). At the same time, older adults are rarely targeted in HIV prevention campaigns and may not realize that their behaviors can put them at risk for HIV infection. As the population of older Americans at risk for—or living with—HIV/AIDS grows, the daily realities and challenges of their lives remain largely invisible in our youth-oriented culture.

The Graying of AIDS combines portraits and oral histories of both long-term survivors and older adults who contracted HIV later in life with HIV/AIDS information to increase awareness, sensitivity, and collaboration among care-giving professionals."

How Do You End A Transmedia Project? | Tribeca Film Institute

How Do You End A Transmedia Project? | Tribeca Film Institute | Storytelling in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"So you've done it. After year's of developing your transmedia project it's finally up and running. But is the end ever in sight?

 

In most avenues of the arts there is an end game. Whether it be a self-imposed deadline or (more likely) one given to you, at some point someone wants to see the finished product. However, the thing about transmedia (at least on the web side of it) is it can go on, and on, and on."
