The Emerson Engagement Lab will participate in a screening of Quiet Rooms, a short documentary produced as part of the Transforming Narratives of Gun Violence initiative, followed by a panel discussion featuring initiative partners from the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) Center for Gun Violence Prevention.
The event will be held Thursday, October 6, 6:00-7:30 pm, at the MGH Bulfinch Tent, 15 Parkman Street, Boston. It is free and open to the public.
Emerson, the Peace Institute, and MGH launched Transforming Narratives of Gun Violence in December 2021 to use co-created, community-centered storytelling in order to interrupt cycles of violence in Boston.
Quiet Rooms highlights the gun violence epidemic in our country, and centers the voices of survivors, as together we seek new approaches to ending the violence. It was produced through one of Emerson’s Social Impact Studios – courses in which students and faculty collaborate with organizations, residents, and other stakeholders within a community to create films, art, games, theatre, storytelling, and journalism that change narratives around social challenges. It was released in April 2022.
