A Revolutionary Storytelling Machine to Fight Alzheimer’s, Connect Generations
This fall Matthew Ross Smith, founder of The Spaces Between Your Fingers project will embark on a unique journey, the 10,000 Strangers Campaign. The Smith will attempt to introduce himself to 10,000 strangers in parks, libraries, arts and senior centers all across America and will offer those he meet a self-addressed, pre-stamped postcard where they can share a memory or story that they do not want to be forgotten. The postcards will be archived and searchable online. Ross began the The Spaces Between Your Fingers Project in 2009 in memory of his grandfather who had Alzheimer’s disease.
