HLP Student Project Puts Face on Durham’s Homeless
Jan 12th, 2011 in Research Service-Learning Pathway
Students in Alex Harris' Documentary Engagement class recently completed an ambitious collaboration with clients of Durham non-profit Housing for New Hope. Housing for New Hope provides outreach and crisis assistance, transitional housing and permanent housing for Durham's homeless population. The final product of this collaboration--created through the service-learning component of the class--was a multimedia website documenting the stories of individuals who benefitted from Housing for New Hope's programming. The audio slideshows produced by students were used as part of a December fundraiser for the organization.
