Senior Scholars Go to Staten Island!

This Saturday, the Seniors, mentors Joelle and Richard, faculty Rachel, and MFA DT student volunteer Bridget traveled to Staten Island to conduct interviews for Sandy Storyline. We traveled around one area of Staten Island, near the beach where residents were hit quite hard by the storm. We visited various hubs that had been set up by volunteers, who had traveled from all over the Northeast to help out after the storm and had been there ever since. Scholars photographed, audio recorded, and sketched interviews with SI residents and volunteers. This work is not only to gather stories for Sandy Storyline, but also to prepare the Scholars for the design work they’ll be doing for the organization.
