Vax Cards to Swim for Life
Participants in the Provincetown Swim for Life & Paddler Flotilla will be required to show proof of vaccination. Protocols for mask-wearing and social distancing will be established before the event on Sept. 11.
This will be the 34th Swim for Life; the event has raised over $5 million since 1988 for women’s health and the Provincetown community, and to combat AIDS.
The saltwater shoreline swim route is 1.2 miles long, running from the beach at Snail Road to the East End Waterfront Park. Alternate events will be announced at ponds in Eastham and Wellfleet for those who prefer freshwater swimming, and those who wish to participate from afar can do so as part of Swimming in Place, the virtual version of Swim for Life.
PTV Video Production Training
Provincetown Community Television (PTV) is offering an intensive video training program to up to five Provincetown residents. No prior experience is needed, said Amy Davies, PTV executive director, who will be the instructor.
“People always think that video is about technology, but it’s really about people,” she said. “People can always learn how to operate a piece of equipment.”
It’s more important that applicants are interested in storytelling, she added.
After completing the five-week program, including producing five short video packages, each participant will receive a stipend. The amounts will depend on the number of people accepted to the program. “The stipend is small,” said Davies, “but I’m hopeful it will be enough for someone to buy a camera.”
The program is funded through a $3,500 grant from the Provincetown Economic Development Committee, Davies said.
Provincetown’s contract with Comcast prohibits PTV volunteers from doing any for-profit jobs with PTV equipment. Davies hopes that people just starting out in videography can find enough support to begin taking jobs with the skills gained from the program.
Applications can be found at provincetowntv.org, and are due by midnight on Sept. 13. —Sophie Hills
