Stories Power Change: A talk with Aderonke Adeola

Dear supporter of women changemakers,

At p.h. balanced films, we know the power of storytelling to change hearts and minds - and, in turn, policies and practices. That knowledge drives everything we do, from our Reel Women Real Change workshops to other events and engagements about stories, film, and media in general.

With your support, we were able to be part of the African Women in Media conference and festival earlier this year. As we shared in our last update, the gathering brought women from around the world to Nairobi, Kenya, where we were honored to host several workshops and panels.

I'm now delighted to share with you one of the one-on-one conversations we had with fellow changemakers at the conference. 

Take a moment to watch our conversation with Aderonke Adeola, the talent and energy behind the film, AWANI.

We look forward to sharing more conversations - and some exciting plans we have in store for 2020 - in the months ahead.

With gratitude, 

Piper Hendricks and the team at p.h. balanced films

At the AWiM19 Closing Ceremony
Dear supporter of women changemakers,
  • 300 women.
  • 16 countries represented.
  • 7,540 miles flown.
  • (x 2 people - each way)
  • 3 days attended.
  • 2 workshops facilitated.
  • 1 panel presented.
  • 1 panel moderated.
  • At least 14 cups of Kenyan coffee enjoyed.
  • Countless connections.
  • Infinite possibilities ahead. 

We set out for Kenya looking to meet fellow women in media, share our Stories Power Change & Stories Change Power approach to advocacy, and learn new perspectives from around the world as part of the third annual African Women in Media conference and festival

We returned with heads full of new ideas, phones full of numbers of new contacts (and friends), and hearts full of inspiration - and feeling downright invigorated!

In the weeks ahead, we will share more via our newsletter from the people we met, all of whom are working across an impressive range of media landscapes. We heard stories from Nigeria, South Sudan, and Ghana, just to name a few.

Did you see something we posted on Twitter during #AWiM19 that caught your eye? A video on Facebook that you'd like to know more about? Have questions about the panels we hosted and workshops we conducted?

Let us know at info@phbalancedfilms.org

As always, thank you for your support. Our work wouldn't be where it is without you.

With gratitude,

Piper Hendricks,

Founder, p.h. balanced films
