The 2017 BLP class based their group project on a demonstrated need to communicate with young professionals and potential relocators the wealth of social and recreational opportunities available in the Berkshires. Together they compiled footage of examples as well as on-screen interviews to create a video sharing that positive narrative about the region. Watch the video to hear directly from class members about their experiences and enthusiasm.
The 2016 BLP class worked with the Elizabeth Freeman Center (EFC) for their group project. Together they raised over $5,500 some of which went to putting up three billboards along the county. The class also designed new promotional materials, increased security features on the EFC website, and significantly improved EFC’s social media presence. Watch the video to hear directly from class members and EFC staff about the experience. You can also read about the impact this BLP class had on the EFC.
