Sharing our stories

The New York Times website has a great interactive feature, inviting people to share their creative energies in describing living through hard times. The project is called The New Hard Times and it features reader created videos. At the site you have Jackson Pollack's descendants reading letters and showing art work he created during the Great Depression, another reader's photo montage of images from that period set to music, interviews with people who survived that devastating era and so on. What an innovative approach to discovering what we all can bring to the table of ideas. And a great creative outlet as well.

They've even posted their own video encouraging you to submit yours.
