As we announced last week, NCDD is organizing a 20th Anniversary Event on November 17th, celebrating this wonderful network and it's contributions since its founding in 2022.
We are inviting our network members to participate in a project that will be featured as part of this event. Inspired by the photo project we did for our national conference in 2012, we are creating a video comprised of photos submitted by our members that include a statement of how you are recommitting to this work and/or this community as we celebrate 20 years together. We have such a broad range of backgrounds, approaches, and perspectives amongst our members, so this is an opportunity to capture this diversity and passion and put it on display! The video will be used in the anniversary event and on the website.
How to Get Involved
We are asking for submissions from network members through November 5th. Take a picture of yourself holding a sign or next to one that expresses (briefly!) what you would like to recommit yourself to. For example, your sign might say: " I recommit to helping students learn the practices of dialogue & deliberation," or " I recommit to helping my community engage with one another respectfully."
We have created a template you are welcome to use - download that here.
But, feel free to be creative about your sign — you can use paper, flip chart easels, iPads, or other tools. The photo should be bright and feature you clearly–we want to see all of your wonderful faces! The statement should be legible and in large enough text that it can be read from a distance. An example is included on the right.
Don't forget to also include your first name, city and/or state, and country. It will be wonderful to see you all and where you are joining in from when we show the video during the event!
To submit your photo, please upload it using this form, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
