DIGITAL DIASPORA FAMILY REUNION

One Dartmouth – One Family

WHAT PURPOSE IS THE FAMILY PHOTO ALBUM IN A DIGITAL AGE?

Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (http://1world1family.me/project/ddfr-trailer-2015/) (DDFR) is deeply rooted in the quest for cross-generational and multicultural understanding and creating a sense of empathy among people of differing backgrounds. DDFR uses the ordinary vernacular images that people create every day as the lever to celebrate the connections, shared values and common experiences that unite us all in our basic humanity. To date, DDFR has held over 40 live DDFR events, in over 30 cities, in partnership with local community organizations, interviewed over 1,100 people, gathered over 18,000 images, recorded over 1,000 hours of video footage, produced over 50 video modules, received over 100,000 “Likes,” and had over 70 million impressions. The Dartmouth community is invited to join this unique reimagining of the Family Album!
