We are Positive
Posted on: October 13 2014, 07:47 am

Posted on behalf of Marc Thompson at Positively UK:
‘We are Positive’ will form the central part of a multimedia project being produced by Positively UK. The project, run by people living with HIV, aims to raise awareness of HIV and challenge HIV-related stigma.

The short film will feature talking heads describing what HIV means to them in 2014. By asking participants to talk about their views of HIV, we aim to challenge preconceptions of what someone living with HIV looks like, present the reality of living with HIV and what it means of terms of relationships, sex, living with a long-term medical condition, and experience of discrimination.

The project will raise the visibility of people living with HIV and challenge people’s attitudes toward HIV. In doing so the project gives voice to people living with HIV and is an empowering tool for people to be heard.
We need people who are living with and affected by HIV, who work with and support people living with HIV to take part and share their thoughts and views.

We will be filming participants responding to and completing two statements:

The statements should be affirmative, and brief, no more than one minute in length.
To accompany the statements participants will also be asked complete and hold up a board with ideally 1 but no more than 3 words that embody their statement.
The films will premiere at the Hackney Fringe! Queer Arts Festival 4-9 November; with official launch World AIDS Day 2014.

We will be filming on the following dates:
•   25 – 26 October: Positively UK 345 City Road, 10.00 – 17.00

Please circulate attached flyer to your networks

I think this has been posted in the wrong forum  as this is the board for steering group members. I suggest for it it be moved to the general news and announcements, so that the largest number of people can see it.
