Movie project about autism: “Stay Then Go”

Give Sign
Creative Fundraising

One of the coolest new ways to fund arts and tech projects, Kickstarter.com, has recently posted an interesting project to create a movie about a mother and son’s experience living with Autism.  This project Stay Then Go is going to give a human face to the challenges of moving from a child to a young adult in a society that does not understands autism.

STAY THEN GO will bring some light to these issues by way of a story- of a mother and her son. And not with statistics, expert talking heads, or case studies. Through, the power of art, and story-telling, we’d like to connect, to entertain, to puncture consciousness, and to move humanity along, just a little.

Documentaries with real people have the potential to reach a much broader impact than a mere recitation of statistics.   This the first film project I, Brian Rowe, have contributed to on kickstarter, I am very excited to see how this project turns out.  If this is of interest to you I recommend heading over to the Stay Then Go Page and pledging to help fun the film.

Brian Rowe is a professor and techie currently working at Northwest Justice Project as the National Technology Assistance Project Coordinator (LSNTAP.org), and teaching at University of Washington and Seattle University Law in the areas of information privacy, ethics and social use of information including: accessibility and access to knowledge for all people as a basic human right. Brian has worked with several nonprofits including Creative Commons, Public Knowledge, KCBA, and Disability Rights Washington. Brian currently serves on the Washington State Access to Justice Board’s Technology Committee, and is on the Faculty Advisory Board for Students for Free Culture.
