6pm Writing Workshop
7pm Program

Join us for this Stoop Series event in which we’ll gather to share stories in our own words of how Hurricane Sandy has impacted our communities while exploring the ways that art and media offer a form of reflection and healing, and a powerful means of imagining a different future. The event will feature Sandy Storyline, a participatory documentary project that is collecting and sharing stories of the impact of Sandy. Sandy Storyline features audio, video, photography, and text stories – contributed by residents and citizen journalists and shared through web documentary and interactive exhibitions. Sandy Storyline is winner of the first-ever Tribeca Film Festival Award for Transmedia.

We welcome you to join us before the program for a free community writing workshop with the NY Writers Coalition at 6pm. A lot has happened this past year. Let’s put pen to paper and see what comes out. All levels of experience are welcome. Writing supplies and writing prompts will be provided, so just bring yourself.
