Danielle Coates-Connor: I love the pieces that we did out of Edge from the Race and Justice Roundtables. And some of the more conversational stuff that we did where we were just pulling snippets from Zoom and things like that. I think it’s a different kind of knowledge creation, like this other part of the voice is very, very fascinating to me. I think that’s what I like the best.
Cyndi Suarez: Yeah, people feel that we honor their thinking. That’s something I keep hearing from people when they see what we do with their work. The videos, the attention that goes into the art that gets created. People are really into the videos. There’s something immediate about them. There’s something also about the freedom. The term I heard is the freedom to not have to write your thoughts.That freedom to share because some of the people that have been trying to share their thinking have tried to put it into writing. And I think as we offer alternatives, they said, ‘I was getting actually blocked by the idea that I had to write, and that’s actually not my favorite thing.’ So I think the fact that we’re doing these articles, the fact that this is under the Voice Lab is we’re starting to articulate different forms of capture. That is something that stands out to me.
