Studio Rhode - My Woonsocket Life - Pauline R.
This video was captured on August 18, 2017 at the Museum of Work and Culture. Pauline R. responded to the following three questions:
1) Tell us your favorite memory of your life in Woonsocket?
2) What do you like about living in Woonsocket or what do you find challenging?
3) What would you do today to change Woonsocket?
The winning idea was to collect 200 video interviews from city residents to help the City of Woonsocket create its comprehensive plan for future planning and economic development. The Woonsocket Harris Public Library also received 40 iPads, funding to convert a study room into a sound-proof creation studio, and $40,000 from the Carnegie Corporation.
