Join us for a showcase and discussion of some of the most compelling work from Narratively – an exciting new multimedia outlet devoted to original and in-depth local stories with a universal appeal.
Narratively is a platform devoted to original, true and in-depth stories. They launched in New York in September 2012 and began their expansion to additional cities in February 2013. Narratively slows down the news cycle. They don’t care about the breaking news or the next big headline; They’re devoted exclusively to sharing a city’s untold stories—the rich, intricate narratives that get at the heart of what a place is all about.
Each week, they explore a different theme and publish a series of stories—just one a day—told in the most appropriate medium for each piece. They might feature a longform article on a Monday, followed by an animated documentary on Tuesday, then a photo essay, an audio piece or a short documentary film. Every story gets the space and time it needs to have an impact—an approach they like to call “slow storytelling” or “slow journalism.”
