CELEBRATING STORYTELLERS: A PATHWAY TO REVITALIZATION FOR THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI

SMALL TOWNS. BIG STORIES.  Telling stories of creativity and resilience in rural south.

I LOVE telling stories that strengthen connections between people and communities. Lately, that means GROWING "story solutions" that model new ways of approaching old challenges.

"Celebrating Storytellers" is a statewide project highlighting "bright spots" in the rural south, seeding a culture of vitality and bottom up economic development.

The result is a curated series of AUTHENTIC, WELL-CRAFTED short documentary films that will tour the state leading up to 2017, Mississippi's Bicentennial. Outreach consists of story circles, community screenings, capacity-building forums and "town talks" that empower SMALL TOWNS to GROW their story, one person at a time.

These stories will be produced under the umbrella of BLUE MAGNOLIA FILMS, by and for Mississippians. The films will be carried from one town to another by people in them ("Story Stewards"). The films will be used as an engagement tool for small towns to foster collaborations, and growth opportunities, including new businesses, downtown developments, leadership networks, and knowledge exchange.

The premise is simple:  "Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can." - Arthur Ashe

These stories are Accessible, Affordable, Adaptable and Actionable for people everywhere. They contain the "wisdom" of small towns- and are FULL of ordinary people, who are LIVING the answers to our most challenging questions.

This body of work INVITES YOU to adapt/adopt stories for your town, pay a story forward to someone in your circle, and/or network with people featured in the films ("Solutionaries").

This is how we flip the story, inside and outside the state- of what Mississippi is all about. These films are about what is LIFE GIVING and worth CELEBRATING.
