By now every New Yorker has a story about Sandy. Some of us faired well but were astonished to see the waters covering the beloved East Village. Some of us were devastated by the destruction. In the end, we all stood together — as New Yorkers. And we continue to stand together.
During Social Media Week New York, our friends at Red on Black Productions will be showcasing the stories of our experiences during Hurricane Sandy through the mobile storytelling platform, Moveable Feast.
They want your stories.
They are looking for the stories of those who experienced the storm firsthand, as well as the hundreds of volunteers who came to help from all over the country. They will be capturing stories through video and audio to share with the others throughout the city and the world, making what we heard and saw through the news come to life.
At SMW NYC select locations, we’ll have touch points where you will be prompted to hear an immersive experience. While free, donations to Sandy Relief and the Red Cross will be accepted.
If you are interested in sharing your story, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can record yourself or they can assist with the production. In addition, please feel free to share your personal images and video from Hurricane Sandy and the aftermath to accompany the stories. The deadline is February 1.
