I received a letter from this fellow in Montreal who has been developing a media project for the last year and a half. The project mandate is to tell stories whenever hands, tools and materials converge. He believes that using our hands in complex ways to make or fix things is extremely important for individuals and society at large. He would like to eventually do three documentaries but for now, one of them “The Creative Touch” has been entered into a pitching contest.
He describes what that is on his site http://workinghandsproject.com/ and provides a link for you to see what it’s all about and if you’d like, send in your vote.
This seems like a fine project to promote and echoes some of the things I do myself.
