This month, we say goodbye to our communications intern Fahad Aldaajani. Fahad joined us from the University of Washington’s CommLead program, where he earned a Master of Communications in Digital Media. Hailing from Saudi Arabia, Fahad had never experienced firsthand a community process. He attended his first community meeting while at Pomegranate Center. Fahad’s eye for detail and knack for visual storytelling has resulted in numerous collaborations over the last six months, including our Woods at Golden Given project video, Pomegranate Method training promo, and our newly launched Image of the Future podcast. We say goodbye with sadness over the departure of such a talented filmmaker and dedicated community member, but with excitement over all the amazing work we know we’ll see from him in the future.
For this special episode, we turned the table on host and interviewer Milenko Matanovic and asked him to share his own image of the future and reflect on the first six episodes of the podcast. We also checked in on his latest work, including his time spent in Slovenia exhibiting his career retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.
Mark your calendars! On May 20th, Milenko will join friend of Pomegranate Center Mark Okazaki to return to the project they collaborated on over ten years ago. Hosted by Atlas Obscura, the “friendly tour-guide to the world’s most wondrous places,” Milenko and Mark will lead participants on an afternoon tour through the garden and share its history, as well as tell stories from their experience working with the local High Point community to design an amphitheater, pocket parks, shelters, and the community garden.
