“We want to keep it open-source, and we want to keep the process transparent, so that when another event happens, this entire platform could be turned on again, or replicated.”

Ariel Newland Kennan, Co-Producer, in Columbia Journalism Review

Hurricane Sandy was one of the most devastating storms to hit the northeastern United States and the Caribbean in a generation, and its effects are still felt in the long rebuilding process. Sandy Storyline is a community-generated narrative of the storm and its aftermath that uses new storytelling platforms like Vojo and Cowbird to collect audio, video, photography, and text stories from residents and citizen journalists. The goal of this collaborative documentation is to foster greater civic dialogue and to put the effects of climate change on a human scale. The online archive features more than 250 stories, testimonies, and visions for the future. These stories are shared through an immersive web documentary and interactive exhibitions.
