How do we make meaning of loss, history and globally shared experiences? How can the voices of all citizens be lifted to create new narratives that truly reflect the needs and aspirations of our communities? With both courage and eloquence, Jake Barton has tackled these and other questions in his award-winning work for the 9/11 Museum and Change By Us. Barton talks about how new channels of shared story-making can help shape both our collective memories and our hopes for the future.
