ART @ 341 FSN & VISUAL COMMUNICATIONS presents:
HOME IS IN THE HEART: SENIORS MAKING MOVIES
Please RSVP by Friday, August 10th at vconline.org/homeinheart.
*$10 suggested donation at the door. Proceeds will benefit Digital Histories.
“Home.” “Place.” “Safe-haven.” “Refuge.”
To us, the idea of identifying a place where we belong can take many forms — a favorite store or hangout, an influential friend or family member, even a past memory that elicits strong emotions. As part of ART @ 341 FSN, formerly known as the Matsumura Gift Shop along historic First Street North, Visual Communications presents a short program of digital motion pictures that celebrates and interrogates the power of “place” as a home, refuge, and a holder of memories. Created by fellows of the innovative Digital Histories seniors’ mediamaking workshop and administered by Visual Communications, the program “Home is in the Heart” will move past simple nostalgia to instill a sense of value to places and memories that are important to us all and, in some cases, are at risk for erasure from our communities and collective memories.
Thank you to our sponsor, G&B Coffee.
