BBC Pop Up is coming to Lebanon for a whole month and they’re asking us to share stories we’d want to tell about our country. They also don’t mind getting help in making some of their films while in Beirut. It’s definitely more challenging to try and crowd-source story ideas from the online community, but it’s more rewarding if done properly and a proper feedback is received.
The BBC team will be holding community meet-ups as well and asking residents to hold a discussion about issues they feel are the most important in their neighbourhoods.
I have a couple of stories in mind that I feel like sharing with them. For those interested, you can fill out the form on their website [here] or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
