The HIV Story Project
ABOUT THE HIV STORY PROJECT
Founded in 2009, The HIV Story Project is a San Francisco based non-profit organization focused on bridging HIV/AIDS with film, media and storytelling to fight the spread of the pandemic and the global stigma associated with it. We create our own film and media projects in addition to offering production services and digital media consultation & training to HIV/AIDS nonprofits in San Francisco and beyond.
The HIV Story Project uses multi-platform media and personal stories to advance HIV/AIDS education and awareness, support HIV/AIDS nonprofit organizations, fight the stigma associated with HIV/AIDS, and give a voice to the HIV positive community.
The HIV Story Project envisions acceptance, support, and empowerment of people living with HIV/AIDS; a reduction in HIV/AIDS health inequalities; and a reduction in new HIV/AIDS infections with the ultimate aim of halting the pandemic.
The HIV Story Project believes in the transformational capacity of personal stories, especially to empower those living with HIV/AIDS and enlighten others about the impact of the pandemic.
The HIV Story Project seeks to support underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by the pandemic, including LGBT people, communities of color, women, and youth.
The HIV Story Project fosters collaboration between those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS, media artists, community advocates, health care providers and public health professionals, funders, and other concerned stakeholders.
The HIV Story Project provides affordable and high-quality media services for HIV/AIDS nonprofits in the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as nationally and globally.
The HIV Story Project is committed to the professional development of emerging media artists, filmmakers, and storytellers, particularly those from underrepresented groups.
The HIV Story Project supports and celebrates diversity in all of its forms and does not discriminate based on sex, gender identity, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religious creed, marital status, medical condition, physical or mental ability.
