ReInvention Stories is a documentary project about people in Dayton, Ohio who have undergone a major change in their lives. It’s being created by a team of media producers collecting radio, film and photographs in neighborhoods across the city. Local filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steven Bognar worked with the staff of 91.3 WYSO in Yellow Springs to bring this project to life.
Every Wednesday morning at 6:30 and 8:30 am on WYSO, and again on Sunday mornings at 1030, a different person tells their story. And each one is accompanied by a short film. You can find the radio stories and the short films here on the WYSO website.
At another website - ReInvention Stories.org – you’ll find a super cool multi-media, interactive website that tells seven more reinvention stories in a longer format. And that’s where you can tell your story and include your own photographs.
Reinvention Stories is part of a larger, national initiative called Localore, birthed by AIR, The Association of Independents in Radio, in collaboration with Zeega, with principal funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Additional support for this project comes from the MacArthur Foundation, the Wyncote Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ohio Arts Council, the Yellow Springs Community Foundation, the Sundance Institute Documentary Fund and Wright State University's Center of Excellence in Collaborative Education, Leadership and Innovation in the Arts.
