Pick Your New Opportunities
Pick Your New Opportunities uses sightless icebreakers to raise awareness of implicit and explicit misconceptions in society and lay the foundation for acceptance, understanding, and cooperation among humans of different ages, races, genders, disabilities and sexual preferences.
This unique social activism project introduces people blindfolded to shatter stereotypes and promote hyper-engaged conversation.
We worked with teachers to introduce students blindfolded on the first day of class, freshmen orientation staff, dorm RAs, disability centers and other college organizations.
Film maker Gabriela Bello helped create the short-film “Listen”, a glimpse into the blindfolded introduction of 8 individuals in Providence Rhode Island on the Brown University Campus and the Occupy Providence encampment.
