30,160 Miles. 300 Women. 3 Days.

At the AWiM19 Closing Ceremony
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

We're heading to Kenya!

Dear supporter of women storytellers and advocates,

In February, we told you that we have two exciting pieces of news in the works - one was a "rough cut" and one a "fine cut." I'm delighted to now share the first that is ready for prime time:

p.h. balanced films is going to Kenya!

In late July, our Content Developer, Alexis Matsui, and I will attend the African Women in Media conference in Nairobi where we will facilitate workshops and join panel discussions on matters of film, advocacy, and storytelling. 

Now in its third year, we look forward to being part of what promises to be an exciting and impactful gathering of experts from around the world.

In the coming weeks, expect to see more about the AWiM conference on our social media feeds, including updates live from the gathering July 25-27.

As always, we are deeply grateful for your support - and we'd like to add a special note of thanks to the p.h. balanced films supporter who let us know about AWiM last year.

Without you, our work would not be possible.

With gratitude, 

Piper
