Interesting collaborative project, sharing stories related to Hurricane Sandy. Details below. -Mia
I want to tell you about a new project we've launched called Sandy Storyline. It is a participatory documentary project that invites contributions from anyone with a cell phone or telephone. We are also working with lots of media makers and audio story tellers to collect storie in sound, photographs, and written stories. The technology we are using is developed by MIT Center for Civic Media and a tech start up called Cowbird.
I'm writing to AIR to see if any of you fine folks might be interested in helping collect stories. Please email email@example.com
if you are interested.
We are also looking for radio stations who are in the listener areas that were hit by superstorm Sandy that might be interested in doing stories on the project, PSA, or helping us get the word out to listeners about this participatory project.
Here's the info:
A beta site should be live in the next few days here: http://sandystoryline.com/
but currently also lives here: http://interoccupy.net/occupysandy/storyline/
Sandy Storyline is a participatory documentary about Hurricane Sandy and efforts to recover and rebuild our neighborhoods.
Share a moment. Share an image. Share a reflection. Share a vision for the future.
