About Sandy Storyline: 

When Hurricane Sandy came barreling up the eastern seaboard, it impacted more than 10 million people, devastating already vulnerable coastal communities. Sandy Storyline consists of a series of character-driven short films and multimedia stories contributed by residents, volunteers and citizen journalists, shared through an immersive web experience, public installations and events. Through collaborating with the people who are experiencing the storm’s aftermath to share their cell phone images, words and voices, Sandy Storyline is democratizing how the story is covered and advancing a bold model of participatory investigation.
