Session 4 Alternative #BTF task – Re-framing The Past
This is the first of our alternative tasks which have be set by Professor and Author of Bending The Frame, Fred Ritchin. If you missed Fred’s talks then you’ll want to go back to the lectures from the start of the class – they’re well worth it. This iteration of Phonar has been re-written to draw on Fred’s Bending the Frame so if you do these tasks then please use both of the #phonar and #BTF hashtags.
Alt task: “Reframing the Past”
Tell the story of an historical news event. Use all of the available and appropriate “with hindsight” perspectives to make a version of the story which you feel is more accurate. Use sources that include witnesses from that moment in time.
Development: Make alternative versions of differing publications/ broadcast channels, which reflect nationally and or culturally diverse perspectives.
