Trading Voices

CADRE  Laboratory for New Media

Trading Voices (2010) is a video intensive dialogic project that actively collects, remixes and publishes oral stories relating to UN Millennium Development Goal 3 (Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women). These stories will be contributed by people from as many different generations and cultures as possible. Each participant will speak on video and then read a few things given earlier by another person unlike themselves also on video. In this way the participants have unique opportunity to identify with another person different from themselves and literally tell us another person’s story. We believe it is very powerful to encourage people to advocate for people unlike themselves. Everyone gets to tell their own story and also step into someone else’s shoes.

The CADRE Trading Voices team is made up of Jenene Castle, DC Spensley, Danielle Siembieda, Sara Gevurtz, Ali Sajjadi, Nancy Sevier, Maayan Koren, James Morgan, James Stone, Yumika Tanaka, Ryan Carrington, Laura Mappin, Tariq Abdul-Wahad, and Alex Gibson.
