Re3 StoryHack

re3 – A hackathon for storytellers with a conscience. October 4-6, NYC: :Crucial stories deserve top talent. We know you are really busy. We know you are really talented. We know you (might) find the typical hackathon a bit chaotic 
React to the world around you. Rethink the way important issues are communicated. Resolve confusion about some of today’s greatest challenges.The Re3 StoryHack is an experiment, but damn, it’s an important one. It’s time to expand the boundaries of justice-focused persuasive storytelling.
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.
An interactive exhibit? Excellent. Flash mob? Sure. App? Why not. Sculpture? Perfect. Print piece? Absolutely. There is absolutely no limitation of medium for the teams’ final outputs as long as they tell captivating, powerful stories.
If you want a bit more clarity about what this is all about, check out our FAQ and these sample stories we’ve put together.
Changemakers and creative storytellers with a conscience, start your engines.”
