I am looking for people to record The Family Reunion event with their personal camera or cell phone and post the video on YouTube. This will be a Collective Document of the Happening, which will give the Internet viewer an idea of the energy stimulated by the performance at Millennium Park.
I am looking for videos that represent your experience of the happening. The footage can consist of the performance, the audience reactions as well as your own personal response.
Here are some of my favorite camera/cellphone responses from Election Night. I hope they inspire you to come on by and contribute to the project!
Documenters, meet us at Cloud Gate on October 17th at 3:30 pm. Please upload the video as The Family Reunion Project or Electric Slide at Millennium Park. Thanks! 🙂

I have been talking to several people about dancing the Electric Slide in the name of unity. A common response to this project is:
“Cool! I want to do it, but I don’t know how to do the Electric Slide.”
Well . . . Here is a video that shows you how to do it step by step.
We will be dancing to Stevie Wonder instead of country music, but this dance is so easy! You can do it to any song. Here’s the event song. I hope it inspires you!
Here is also campy instructional video just for fun! Enjoy!
If you would like personal instruction on how to do the Electric Slide, please come to the workshop and meet other dancers. Stay tuned for more info!
