Dear supporters of women changemakers, 

The United States is currently navigating two major crises: the novel coronavirus and centuries-old deeply-embedded racial injustice.

As a small, 100% volunteer-run nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC, we are taking a moment to regroup individually and reflect as a team on our next steps. The stay-at-home directives several weeks ago that have only recently begun to lift meant hitting pause on a project we began earlier this year. In the weeks ahead, we will determine how best to proceed and look forward to sharing more news in our next update.

For now, we sincerely hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy, in all senses of that word. 

As always, thank you for your support. We wouldn't be able to do the work we do without you.

With gratitude and hope,

Piper

Dear supporter of smart storytelling for impact,

2020 is off to a strong start and we have exciting projects underway here at p.h. balanced films!

We'll provide a behind-the-scenes look in our next update (but if that feels too far away, take a peek now on any of our social media platforms - Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram).

In this update, we're delighted to share a series of short videos from our recent work in Nairobi.

The Stories Power Change collection features conversations with fellow African Women in Media attendees about the importance of storytelling. From a radio show or a full-length documentary film, to journalism and multimedia engagement, each has made an important impact with stories in their respective countries and communities.

Take a few moments to watch today. We'd love to know which one you find most inspiring!

With gratitude for your support and excitement about the year ahead,

Piper

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

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 (#AWiM19)

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
