Do you consider yourself to be resourceful?
When interpreting a script, you need to work with what you have to tell a story convincingly and with heart. Good storytelling demands your all.
This week, I happened to see a video featuring the story of the Landfill Harmonic, a tale that brings tears to your eyes and warms the heart.
Take a look at how a group of people in Paraguay are making beauty from ashes in today's VOX Daily.
Have you ever seen a story unfold that you just had to share?
While waiting for my daughter's piano lesson to end, I happened to learn about the Landfill Harmonic website and the Recycled Orchestra.
"The world generates about a billion tons of garbage a year. Those who live with it and from it are the poor - like the people of Cateura, Paraguay. And here they are transforming it into beauty. Landfill Harmonic follows the Orchestra as it takes its inspiring spectacle of trash-into-music around the world. Follow the lives of a garbage picker, a music teacher and a group of children from a Paraguayan slum that out of necessity started creating instruments entirely out of garbage. Landfill Harmonic is a beautiful story about the transformative power of music, which also highlights two vital issues of our times: poverty and waste pollution." -Landfill Harmonic
Here's a link to watch the Landfill Harmonic video on YouTube.
