What is Edutainment?
Edutainment is content designed to both educate and entertain. It includes content that is primarily educational but has a high entertainment value.
Why does Family Bridges use Edutainment?
At its heart, these productions embrace Family Bridges’ goal of weaving together the threads of family, marriage, culture and identity, strengthening the fabric of our communities.
While the larger society and the large entertainment industry seems at times intent on unraveling the threads of marriage and family, our work will ensure the strength and vibrancy of our communities, stronger than the sum of their parts and united in common goals, common values and common dreams.
