Once upon a hack: Socially conscious storytelling event in NYC

From the “two great things that go great together” file:

In New York City the weekend of October 5 and 6, changemakers with stories to broadcast and creative storytellers with a penchant for social impact will join forces for the first Re3 Storyhack.

Some of the issues participants in next weekend’s hackathon intend to tackle.

According to their (very pretty) website:

We’re asking changemakers to propose specific stories relating to complex issues like economic fairness, climate change, educational opportunity, and many more.

We’re offering creative storytellers the chance to choose one of ten selected stories and work with top-notch teammates. Over the Re3 StoryHack weekend, we will innovate new ways of thinking and communicating these stories in language; written, visualized, performed, coded and more.

Piquing your interest? Early birds have snapped up all the storyteller spots, but you can still get the scoop on nominating your changemaking story—and have a read about the people and process behind Re3—on their website.
