White Elephant film impact recognized at Bloomberg Philanthropies

What an amazing honor to have one of our films recognized by Bloomberg Philanthropies! This month, they released a report outlining the creative sector’s ability to address pressing civic issues, highlighting Bloomberg’s Public Art Challenge, which happened in 2016-2017 in Spartanburg and was led by Chapman Cultural Center.  For that project, White Elephant’s own Tim Farrell and Robyn Hussa Farrell co-directed collaborative and community engagement documentary films that were used as part of the “Video Village” installation.  In particular, the “One on One – Discussions with Police and Residents” film is now being used as a training tool for police officers.  For their work, Hussa and Farrell received the 2018 Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award alongside our partners at The Bethlehem Center of Spartanburg.

Here’s a recap of how Video Village was created …
