Audio clips and transcripts of Storytelling and Organizing Project (STOP), based in the United States. STOP is a community project collecting and sharing stories about everyday people taking action to end interpersonal violence.
The idea behind this story was to find a way to describe an arts project that involved an artist, an informatics specialist and a man with a liking for music. The man in question had a learning disability, a sight impairment and physical disability, which meant he was reliant on others choosing what he listened to. Artist Steve Hollingsworth began creating a sound system which could be operated with one simple hand movement, enabling the man to select what he felt like listening to from a library of sounds.
