HIV-related initiatives

The Lifeboat Project is a unique web-documentary that focuses on the experiences of families living in Europe as they come to terms with hiv/aids. "In 2006, we began to film mothers, fathers and children to hear more about what it is like living with a positive status. Stigma is still a very real problem for all of them. Some of our families have never spoken openly about hiv. Many participants decided to remain anonymous but still wanted a safe space from which to document their lives." Please click on the link to see the Lifeboat Project Press Release.
"We work with a participatory model of filmmaking – mothers, fathers and children are the content creators. The Lifeboat team works closely with each family and together we create media that concentrates on issues, experiences and stories that are relevant, authentic and important at the time of filming. Nothing is scripted. Participants do not need to be identified (faces do not need to be shown, voices can be altered, names can be changed, context information can be carefully dealt with), but can still have a platform for their “voices” in our work. Our media is aimed at other families who are also coping with stigma surrounding hiv/aids and health professionals.  We also make our work available to the mainstream media and offer them less discriminatory portraits of living with hiv as a tool to break ignorance and discrimination in the broader community. We are always looking for new participants and also for feedback from viewers of our website."

PLEASE COME BACK SOON .... we will be adding more to this site regularly!
