Their Lives. Their Stories.

We place video cameras into the hands of unrepresented communities confronting critical social issues and provide them with the training to show us – and the world – what’s important to them. 

Videos from our vault… and from our workshops.

Handheld Stories provides communities confronting critical social issues the tools to digitally document their experiences in unique narratives and promote them online. From helping participants to understand their unique circumstances as vital and important stories, to editing the final piece on a laptop or tablet, Handheld Stories helps an authentic voice emerge that’s empowered to address these issues in new and profound ways.
