South of the Sound Community Farm Land Trust
Stories are a powerful tool to build momentum, support, and understanding around a community need or value. Let us help you tell the story of your mission, vision, and impact.
Still photographs can be arresting. When paired with a bit of text they can have a powerful impact. We can produce a photo essay that you can display online, in print materials and displays, or at presentations.
We partnered with the Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association to do a photo essay on geoduck farmers in the South Puget Sound. The exhibit toured many locations, including a legislative reception hosted by PCSGA in Olympia, WA.
We can produce videos for your next fundraiser or crowdfunding campaign, to raise awareness about your work, or to share stories of impact. Past clients include: Thurston Conservation District, South of the Sound Community Farmland Trust, and Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.
Interested in creative ways to do a communications campaign about your work? Does your organization do work that's difficult to show or explain? Some stories lend themselves more to audio than visual formats.
For International Conflict Resolution Month in October 2015, Window Seat Media partnered with the Dispute Resolution Center of Thurston County and KAOS 89.9 FM to produce Stories of Conflict and Connection. Each week KAOS aired a conversation between two DRC mediators about the transformative potential of conflict – to foster human connection and understanding.
Oral History/Storytelling Workshops and Coaching
Do you want your students to do oral history projects as part of your curriculum? Does your group want to learn how to preserve family stories? Does your organization or group want to gather stories from clients in various formats? Do you want to help your volunteers and Board members be more effective storytellers? Do you need help coaching clients to tell their story at an event? We offer custom designed trainings and coaching services to meet your needs.
Past clients include: The Evergreen State College Grays Harbor Program, The Fellowship of Reconciliation, Association of Washington Conservation Districts, and Dispute Resolution Center of Thurston County.
Curation - Events + Conversations
We're passionate about creating opportunities to spark connection, creativity, and collaborative problem-solving. We're available to help you curate your next event, conversation, or meeting. We offer a flexible menu of services, from one-time consultation for event tune-ups and ideas to hosting a conversation for your group to full service event curation.
Organizations are like bodies. When they are out of alignment forward movement can be painful. We can help you identify where it hurts and guide you through a process of realigning your organization so that you can regain momentum.
