Along with Councilmember Ed Reyes, KCET Departures invited the public to share their LA River stories through the Departures' StoryShare initiative on December 4th, 2010.
Departures StoryShare is an ongoing series of community recording events aimed at capturing the stories of individuals who have strong personal memories and history attached to their neighborhoods. Our goal is to create a collective narrative cartography of neighborhood stories by exposing the subjective and personal history through the eyes of community members.
