Photos produced by Flint native Dan White, Justin Brown, filmmaker. Be among the first to see these stunning and timely productions from the heart of Flint.

In case you need them, here are instructions for using Zoom:

  • It is not necessary to have Zoom downloaded on your phone or computer
  • Click on the Zoom link in the instructions
  • The video starts at 7 p.m. but you can click on the link before 7 p.m.
  • If you click on the Zoom link before 7 you will be placed in a “waiting room” where you can wait for the host to let you into the video viewing.
  • You will be notified by a window on your screen that says something like “waiting for the host to let you in.” When you see that wait patiently.
  • Once you’re in the video viewing area you can control the volume by clicking a microphone icon at the bottom of the screen to mute or unmute yourself.
  • Also, make sure your computer or phone’s volume is turned up.
  • During the discussion times you can participate by video (allowing yourself to be seen on other’s screens) by clicking the video icon at the bottom of the screen.
  • Please be aware that the host can mute you at any time.
  • At the top of your phone or computer screen there is a place for you to control how many screens marked by a series of dots or small squares in a cluster. This will allow you to choose which screens you see on your screen.

We will start promptly at 7 p.m. so please get to the virtual meeting early – we are limited to 100 people in our meeting. When you join early you will be greeted with a screen letting you know that the host will let you into the meeting once we begin. Once in the meeting, all participants will be muted to ensure a timely and clear start to our time together. If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, you can toggle back and forth from gallery view (seeing everyone in the meeting) and speaker view (the presenters of the meeting being on your main screen). That toggle is in the upper right corner of the Zoom screen. You have the option of joining with audio and/or video from your phone, tablet, or computer as well. You can also “unmute” yourself to say hello in the lower-left corner of the Zoom meeting screen.
