Adam Bortner creates digital stories.  We haven't had the pleasure of meeting him (yet - come visit us!), but he has done great work with videos.  We'll be sharing more of the stories that Adam helped to tell throughout the month, but we'll start with his.

Adam wrote:

I have worked over the past three years directly with people living with HIV/AIDS in the Philadelphia to document their stories and elevate their voices. We have made digital stories together (sort of like movies, but the core is someone's recorded life story that is accompanied by photographs/images and sometimes music). Some of the people who made the stories wanted to share them with the world and have uploaded them to YouTube. They are very powerful

Adam also sent us the story that got him into this.  We are really pleased and honored to be able to share it with you.
