  • We invited participants to provide the stage decoration by bringing objects that were important to them and were tied to the theme of culture of community. These objects served as catalysts for conversations throughout the day and beyond as we posted pictures and stories on our Twitter feed and tweeted updates when new photos and stories appeared.

    allow for time shifts
    Choose videos that are diverse
