Event Description

Everyone has a story to tell. We also know the challenges that can come with the process of capturing a narrative - reticent subjects, wandering tales, technology difficulties, meeting self imposed deadlines, etc. Many people understand the importance of capturing their stories and sharing their experiences with family and friends, but need help navigating these issues. Whether for your own familiy or clients, the collaboration can provide a structure for making the process more manageable. Each resulting project can be as unique as every combination of filmmaker and subject. In this session, story facilitator Ronda Barrett will describe the best practices she has developed during her career and discuss the variety of projects and approaches to legacy stories.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER 

RONDA BARRETT
Ronda Barrett is a producer and story facilitator who has helped families and organizations capture their stories for over 20 years. Ever since her efforts in the mid-90s to help pregnant ​HIV-positive women to document their stories for their children, Ronda has been focused on the stories of everyday people. After working for years telling the organizational stories of her clients at a DC marketing firm, in 2003 she was inspired to return to individual and family stories. She hit the road, travelling to Syria to document the personal stories of Damascus residents and returned to the states to tackle her own family history trove. She established Honor Your Story and has been helping people to document their stories ever since. As featured in The Washington Post, she is part of an international effort to promote the benefits of capturing personal histories. She encourages everyone to determine the best approach to their life story and not delay actually doing it.
