    Land of Opportunity and Cowbird Co-Launch 'New Orleans' Saga

    It’s been said that New Orleans will punch you in the face and then hand you a rose. And whether you’ve called it home, hammered nails in the Lower 9th Ward, or simply strolled down Frenchmen Street, you’ll probably agree it’s a city that leaves a lasting impression on your heart, soul, and liver. This month, on the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we’re pleased to announce a new partnership with Cowbird, an amazing digital storytelling platform that collects stories created by people all over the world told in images, text, and sound.

    After experiencing this simple and impactful tool for sharing memories and moments, we decided to team up with them to create Cowbird’s first place-based Saga, New Orleans, and as of yesterday’s launch serves as an official call for open and ongoing NOLA-driven story contributions. If you’d like to participate, let us know and we’ll help you submit a story of your own.

    We’re excited to watch this saga unfold into a beautiful mosaic of stories as powerful and diverse as the city that inspired them.
