These modules are based on everything that team Doc Society has learned over the years from working with the most brilliant filmmakers and the cleverest organisations in film. Thank you one and all.
Together we’re really getting stuff done.
Applause please for the New Citizenship Project for helping us to conceive and deliver the modules. Jon Alexander and Irenie Ekkeshis helped us test, refine and present our ideas. - Doc Society shares their belief that a new, more genuinely participatory society is ready to emerge – a society in which the primary role of the individual is the Citizen, not just the Consumer.
Made possible by:
A nod and a wink to our incredible collaborators on Good Pitch, where so much of this work gets tested, Cara Mertes, our partner from the get-go now at Ford Foundation, Sandi DuBowski our peerless Outreach Director. Also Sundance Institute, Fledgling Fund, Working Films, Chicken and Egg, Impact Partners, Wyncote and Cross Currents Foundation and everyone who helped Good Pitch to be actually Good.
A special shout out to James Franklin - Doc Society Creative Director for the look and feel of the modules and cheers to Stu Tily - trusty Tech Director for making everything actually work.
And finally a major THANKS to everyone who participated in the Impact Lab in New York in March 2014 and for generously giving their ideas and reflections, which we shamelessly used here.
