Come kick-off a FairStreet crowdfunding effort for ‘The Oil Men‘, a multimedia journalism project covering the oil boom in Williston, North Dakota. What’s it like to live in a world where there are too many jobs? To pay rent that rivals cities like Tokyo and Manhattan? To pay $7 for a gallon of milk and be offered a $300 signing bonus to work at McDonalds? This is all happening in a a small outpost in North Dakota, a town where men outnumber women six to one, and where the high rent will barely get you a trailer with running water.

To find out what it’s like, financial journalist online januvia price Blaire Briody, photojournalist Brad DeCecco and documentary filmmaker Ashley Panzera are heading there this summer to produce a nonfiction book, a short documentary, and photo project. They’ll be telling the story of how a small town was transformed overnight into a bustling nearly all-male metropolis, and looking at what the environmental fallout might be. There will be a short film, free wine, beer and snacks at the kick-off event!
