There are words everywhere around you. Seriously. Think about it: store signs; No Parking signs; political ads lining lawns; ads stapled to telephone poles; street names; traffic signs; marquees; Sales! posters…the list goes on. In this Meridian Stories Challenge, we ask you to explore your community through the signage that pervades the environment. This is also an exploration in language and how it is used to direct us; to warn us; to sell to us; and to surround us. In short, this Challenge asks you to really look at how the signage – the public display of language around your community – helps to shape your community. And then make a short movie of all those words!
