INCLUSIVE STORYTELLING MATTERS
Most of Hannah’s recent film work has focused on social change through digital storytelling. This includes working across Alaska on various collaborative projects including, The Choose Respect anti-bullying media campaign,
a communications tool kit that has been distributed to schools and prevention programs across Alaska.
Additional work includes a digital storytelling project with The Island Institute where students from from remote villages across Alaska captured stories about their experiences with climate change.
Currently Hannah Guggenheim is the filmmaker for THRIVING COMMUNITIES, an initiative of the WHIIDBEY INSTITUTE. This program, is a call to action; telling stories in collaboration with people and processes that celebrate communities as they grow. With a deep focus on the root structures of humanity, our lens is focused on the needs of any human, including stories about resilience highlighting food, water, shelter, art, health and wellness.
