Content Creation for
Our Isolated World
As Head of Content for Our Isolated World I researched, curated and built content around isolated stories from our global community. The project started during the Coronavirus pandemic as supporting material to a proposed documentary series by Basma Khalifa with the aim to connect isolated people.
We sent out a general request for voice notes about personal isolation experiences. I also researched and requested specific stories I felt were important; to give a voice to people or issues that may go unseen. Creating content from the eye-opening stories sent to us and investigating narratives we felt were untold made for a interesting project to work on.
The short stories ranged from at home lockdown stories, to religious isolation stories, to being isolated at sea. Have a listen to some of the stories below.
