Spent today recording soundbites and a video for the Stand Tall Get Snapped Project. It is to be broadcast as a promotional item for the exhibition due to be held in Soho London from November to January to commemorate the 30 years since the first cases of HIV in the UK. The purpose of the exhibition, which will feature the photgraph of 30 people living with HIV, and a short discriptive of their journey from diagnosis to now, is to show that HIV can affect anyone.
It is intended to dispel the myths and assumptions that surround HIV positive people, and by doing so, reduce the stigma that is associated with the virus and those living with it.
More details of the project can be found here; http://standtallgetsnapped30hivpeople.tumblr.com/
It includes details of an event being held next week on Saturday 30th of June at 56 Dean Street Soho.
There you have the chance to speak to 4 of the people involved in the project who will be speaking from 12 o’clock to 6 o’clock at 2 hour intervals, so do come along to find out more about HIV, directly from those people most affected!
More details of the video will be released soon, so keep watching this space.
Thanks for your ongoing support,
The Crescent Team
