My work over the past three years has been so rewarding, challenging, inspiring. It’s helped me to level up in my understanding of intersectionality and the impact of our stories. (View the 2017 & 2018 StoryMuse Annual Reports.)
In particular, I’ve spent the last two years working with the Georgia Council for Developmental Disabilities, traveling the state with some ace photographers and collecting stories about constituents with developmental disabilities for advocacy purposes.
After filing more than 80 stories, I’m so proud and excited to announce that we have just launched an all-new seven-episode podcast, Hidden Voices.
This work–and the corresponding podcast–is a testament to the power of storytelling as a way of embracing intersectionality, leveling the playing field, and ensuring that the quietest voices among us get heard loud and clear.
As a partnership between the participants, GCDD, Resurgens Impact Consulting, L’arche Atlanta, StoryMuse, and Frqncy Media, it is also a testament to the power of collaborative process.
Hidden Voices premieres today, October 30, on Apple, Spotify, iHeart, and Stitcher. Episodes will drop once a week for the next seven weeks and will cover a range of topics, including housing, transportation, adaptive tech, service animals, and so much more!
I hope you’ll check it out because, frankly, this is some of the deepest work I’ve done in my life.
May you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed helping to create it.
I’m going to enjoy one a day (oops – they’re only available one a week?). The Asher story is beautiful!! oxoox Elise
