NOW HEAR THIS! is the kick-off endeavor of The Dilemmas Project inviting citizens of consumer culture to be heard, literally. To showcase the challenges facing our times, The Dilemmas Project asks you to air your feelings by recording a personal story of an experience or situation that poses a predicament to how you live. Whether it’s a big catch-22 that challenges your conscience, or simply a small consumer ‘pickle’ – all is fair game. The result, an audio collection of stories covering the dilemmas people are facing in day-to-day life. We share these stories in hopes of spreading awareness, igniting conversation and inspiring creative, positive solutions.
Volume ONE is now a wrap and the audio files here reflect some of the amazing stories that have come our way. Sit back, put on your headphones and listen to what the world is pondering today.
