Reversing the Trend
People are inherently valuable not because of what they “do” or how they look, but because they are created in the image of God. Unfortunately, because many people so closely identify with a particular group that they, at best, overlook and often “rank” others based on misconceptions. This leads to tremendous hurt, pain, segregation, isolation, fear, judgement, and hate.
The Inherent Value of People aims to destroy the misconceptions of value by telling the stories of real people from around the world. In doing so, we will find that regardless of race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, or location, we all share common themes, desires, and stories. We are all connected. We are all valuable. We are all created in the image of God.
Modalities of storytelling:
Video. Meet some incredible people as they share their stories in their own words. And don’t forget to stay tuned for some crazy antics that are sure to be caught on tape.
Images. Photos of each person highlighted will be taken capturing the essence of the person and their unique beauty.
The images will be compiled in a gallery showing and also in a coffee table book for purchase.
Art. Each individual who shares his/her story will also create a small 5” x 7” piece of artwork. Those pieces will be displayed in a gallery showing as well as be turned into note cards. The artwork will provide us with an alternative glimpse into each person’s story.
One hundred percent of the profits from the coffee table book, note cards, and additional funds raised will go into a fund to help support the at-risk individuals/families/communities represented throughout this process. Funds will either be funneled through an existing non-profit or micro-financing organization.
