Welcome to Trouble the Water, a blog hosted by Phoebe Eng, Creative Counsel for The Opportunity Agenda; Brian Drolet, longtime community TV activist and Director of Deep Dish TV; and several guest bloggers from the Gulf region.
Throughout 2006 we'll be working with a wide network of New Orleans-based videographers on a multipart video series called Trouble the Water: Recovery and Resistance in New Orleans. The series will focus on the stories of activists, communities, and policymakers as they do the hard work of rebuilding their city, the solutions they are promoting, and the challenges they face.
This blog contains news, recommended videos and footage sources, community contacts, and other helpful information for videographers seeking to tell the stories of the Gulf region rebuilding process. We also feature video work that compares the Gulf rebuilding process with other urban planning processes in cities across the country, or shows how the Gulf region can be rebuilt as a model city of opportunity and equity. We hope you'll visit often and share this blog widely!
