Hear Me Out

Hear Me Out was an audio storytelling workshop series, co-produced by Virginia Marshall, UnionDocs, and lead instructor Stephanie Foo. Fourteen Brooklynites applied and were accepted to the program. They each came in with a story to tell about Brooklyn, and over the course of twelve weeks, they learned the basics of recording, editing, and mixing their own audio stories. Hear Me Out was part of BKLYN Incubator, and was generously supported with funding from The Charles H. Revson Foundation and Robin K. and Jay L. Lewis. Family Inc.
