THIS I BELIEVE REVEALED subject Wendy Lawton discusses the project and the impact it had on her. Her This I Believe essay is titled “Redemption”
RIPR (Rhode Island National Public Radio) This I Believe and Scott Indermaur’s REVEALED are two projects that have been easily merged and complement each other to create the project THIS I BELIEVE REVEALED. This collaboration makes an even greater impression and impact on Rhode Islanders through print, radio and photography that create a unique and multi-dimensional experience and personal connection for the audience. Lawton’s essay may also be heard at RIPR’s website.
The collaboration features the essays of Rhode Islanders who share the core values that guide their daily lives and those individuals sharing those core values as REVEALED subjects. The result is a powerful combination of creativity, words and photography.
This project is made possible in part by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, through an appropriation by the Rhode Island General Assembly and a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
I’m very excited to announce and schedule a REVEALED session in California this October. It has been something I have been trying to do for years.
I’m looking for a few people who want to be REVEALED subjects in Camarillo, CA on October 14th, 2010. This is north of Los Angeles. A session takes 90 minutes and you get a print. There is no charge for this session or the print.
Contact Scott Indermaur at firstname.lastname@example.org for more questions and to be a subject. I look forward to this experience and adding more subjects to this amazing project.
Nicole Purcell recently wrote a blog on dlife about her experience as a This I Believe REVEALED subject. Her entry may be found here in their blogabetes section. She writes about her thought process on what to put in her REVEALED box and as she says, “how diabetes has informed my “spiritual experience”.”
“I was also surprised at how I felt during the session. I was thinking through the challenges of balance, and wondering if, in the case of managing diabetes and weighing it against one’s spiritual existence, a perfect balance isn’t exactly perfect. I struggled.” Nicole Purcell wrote.
I always enjoy hearing about how a subject connects with themselves, REVEALED and even myself. Their experience with REVEALED is different than mine and both of our experiences can be very powerful with a strong connection as we are collaborating together to “reveal” themselves. I learn so much about myself from these connections. Reading her essay brought tears to my eyes. I am very grateful to hear about these experiences and also being part of them.
