Conversations From the Open Road

Guiding Principles for Us as a Media Crew

We practice only Genuine and Compassionate Listening;

We respect the story of any and everyone we meet:

everyone is entitled to, and legitimately speaks from,

his/her own experience.

We are LISTENING. We are learning FROM individuals. We are allowing others to EXPAND our knowledge and perspective, not the other way around.

We are aware and mindful about what it means to take another's story, and to take his/her/their photograph.

Making Media is a privilege and responsibility.

We are aware of the power relationship that taking and making media entails.

We are thankful for the gift, and the act of faith and trust on the part of every individual we interact with.
