Hey North Shore mamas….want to be on TV? W Network’s The Audience (Canada) is looking for families or individuals that are faced with a dilemma, having a difficult time with a decision, looking for some advice and would like to share their journey. Bring your kids for treats & play time at the Picnic Pavilion at Granville Island (next to Cat’s Social House) on Thursday, May 23rd from 12:00 to 2:30 pm to find out more about how to get involved with the show!
The Audience is a transformative, caring and compassionate social series. Each one-hour episode focuses on an individual or family who is struggling with a life-changing decision and is at a crossroads in their life. The inspiration for the show is the modern trend of crowd sourcing. Every day, millions of users on Twitter and Facebook consult their family, friends & followers for advice. Many of our major decisions are played out online. The Audience brings the concept of social networking to television and explores the question: Can the wisdom of the crowd change a person’s life for the better?
The Audience employs a clever and surprising format. For one week, the individual is followed by ‘The Audience;’ 50 ordinary, insightful people from diverse backgrounds. ‘The Audience’ puts their heads together, debates the dilemma, and comes up with the best possible solution… the wisdom of the crowd. At the end of the week, ‘The Audience’ presents its considered, collective, and thoughtful advice to the individual that should help them move forward and make a positive decision regarding their dilemma.
Some examples include, but are not limited to: Should I join the family business? Should I sell the family business? Should we downsize to simplify life? Should we relocate for better schools/closer to work/better lifestyle? Should we get married? Should we call off our wedding? Should we kick out our adult child that is still living with us? Should I move out of my parents home? Should I homeschool my child? Should I be a stay-at-home dad? Should I place my elderly parent in care or move them into my home? Should I sell it all and take off on an extended adventure?
