Thank you to everyone who came out to Evening of Witness last month! We’re delighted to present a selection of audio pieces created during the event by radio producer Rachel James, with photography by Geordie Wood. Click here to listen to them all, or hear a short excerpt below.
Listen to Luke Nephew, of New York City’s Peace Poets, as he reads a selection fromVoices from the Storm: The People of New Orleans on Hurricane Katrina and Its Aftermath:
About Evening of Witness: Powerful water events are shaping our world and lives ever more dramatically. The March 21st event Evening of Witness was a chance to reflect – as a global community – on our relationship with this dominant and essential force. The Magnum Foundation and Voice of Witness partnered to weave visual and spoken narratives about personal and international water politics. Supported by the ongoing Water Initiative at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, this cross-platform documentary event took place in one of New York City’s most magnificent Gothic Cathedrals.
