During the summer of 2019, Midstory’s college interns from all over the U.S. came together with incoming freshman at the University of Toledo and participants in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s Multicultural Emerging Scholars Program. We at Midstory believe in the power of stories, and in bridging gaps by talking about what unites us all as humans. In a multi-week collaborative effort, the students produced mini-projects based upon their own stories as they start their college careers here in Toledo.
Midstory is a 501(c)(3) non-profit thinkhub that progresses the narrative of the Midwest by incubating bright, diverse and interdisciplinary thinkers to exchange ideas and envision the future of our region through multimedia storytelling and solutions-oriented research since its founding in 2018.
As an educational media organization, we inform, interpret and inspire in and for the Midwest and believe that our region’s challenges can be our greatest asset to drive renewed interest and human capital into post-industrial cities.
