The New Prosperity Initiative, Co-Founder, Digital Media & Video

Between 2008 and 2012, The New Prosperity Initiative (NPi), publicized the efforts of individuals and organizations working to build social and economic prosperity in and around Boston, Massachusetts and later, throughout New England and Detroit and a few locations worldwide. Through media and events, we aimed to help weave a network of ideas and solutions aimed addressing the root causes of systemic social and economic issues. As our work evolved, we began entering the conversation on systems change and emergence and began leading workshops like “Social Media Meets Purpose” and “Rethinking Careers in Social Change for the 21st Century”.

About North End Stories:

North End Stories is a digital narrative project that aims to collect, preserve, and share the stories of Italian-Americans whose families immigrated to Boston’s North End in the late 19th and early 20th century.

How has the neighborhood changed since 1900? since 1950? How have lifestyles changed? What has stayed the same? How is Italian-American culture alive today in the North End? The project is a series of video interviews, a booklet of photos and quotes, and an interactive website. More at http://northendstories.com.
