Several Westside Collaborative organizations are partnering together to feature faces and stories of neighbors who identify as "westsiders." 30 individuals will be filmed in 10-minute sessions to answer a set of formal questions. These questions are going to be answered by a diverse group of our community in hopes of being representative of the Westside of Grand Rapids.
The hope is that those who identify as Westsiders, whether they live, work, play, worship, or serve on the Westside, would participate. We need Westsiders who have cherished that label since birth, those new to the moniker, and all those in between.
Please consider the following questions, and if comfortable, sign up for a time using the link provided below. All participants will receive a free I AM WESTSIDE T-shirt, button, and bumpersticker/decal. Additionally, all who film on June 28th and their families will be invited to a private viewing* of the video project's Grand Opening at the Grand Rapids Public Museum where the edited project will live as a video exhibit in association with the "Changing America" exhibit coming to Grand Rapids this summer.
*While all those recording videos will be used in future I AM WESTSIDE marketing and media, there are no guarantees that each and every participant will be in the GRPM video in association with the museum exhibit.
