COLife Project Ideas
In response to the national crisis, PSTV has been in the kitchen cooking up new concepts to engage youth in direct response to Covid-19. PSTV would like you to share your narrative. The COLife Narratives is a collection of stories produced by students in Philadelphia documenting their journey to normal.
The COvid Narratives are easy ways to stay connected to creators around Philadelphia and share how you are spending your time.
All projects are designed to be able to be completed using multiple forms of multimedia you feel comfortable with. PSTV grants you rights to be as creative as you like in regard to how you get your point across in sharing your story. Feel free to transform your topic into any art form. i.e. Video, podcast, photo, writing, graphics, drawing, etc.
Future Self – Think about where you were in life and now what your new normal looks like. You can write a letter if it helps you to tell your story and fun to hold onto. This project could be told through photo collages, videos, podcasts, drawing as a way to tell your story.
Trials and Triumphs – In a time of reflection this is a great time to look back and think about some of the trials you have faced in life and the triumphs that have come from difficult times. Write a letter to yourself as it helps you to tell your story. This project could be told through photo collages, videos, podcasts, drawings as a way to tell your story. This is a great project for Senior Year Reflection.
Grateful – Do you have someone or something you are grateful for. This is the perfect time to share what being grateful means to you. This project could be told through photo collages, videos, podcasts, drawings to show gratefulness.
Passion – Share something you are passionate about. (How To Make up video, sneaker talk, etc.) This is a great project to think about something that drives you in life. This project could be told through photo collages, videos, podcasts, drawings.
Sanitation Poster – Design a poster encouraging students to to wash their hands and to cover their mouths when they sneeze or cough. Incorporate your school’s colors and logo.
Stay – at- Home – Tell us how you are occupying your time. Create a short video documenting how you are occupying your time during StayHome culture.
Create a video teaching another student your age how to do something. Make sure you video and or content is clear a walk a person threw step by step
Educational Achievements – Celebrate yourself or a friend on #classof
2020 GOAT AWARD… Make a 30 second video giving someone the GREATEST OF All TIME award (GOAT). This could be someone making an impact on you or your community.
Sports Predictions – Create a video or podcast around your favorite sports team and make your year predictions.
PSTV Playwrites – Is a writer’s space for those of you interested in just writing stories that can be used by other students to generate. Writings can encompass an individual story, a poem, script, monologue, fiction, nonfiction, biography, screenplay, etc. The long term goal with PSTV Playwrites is to have your written piece with your permission turned into a visual pieces of art. We will expand this space once we receive your “playwrites”.
