RESEARCH: The Contraflow Collection

Over the past five years the Contraflow Research Project amassed tens of thousands of paper , electronic fnd image files; which include After Action Reports, photos, DVDs, audio interviews, testimonies, responder journals, newspaper articles, etc. Our goal is to transcribe, scan and categorize every piece of research material, and identify a permanent electronic and physical home where the public can access our work.

Population(s) Served

Over the past five years the Contraflow Research Project amassed enough knowledge for at least three stories: CONTRAFLOW, documenting the first two weeks of Katrina; WATER LINES, documenting the Repopulation Era of New Orleans between November 2005 – Summer 2006; SINCE RECONSTRUCTION, documenting life in Greater New Orleans from the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina (8.29.06) to the fifth anniversary (8.29.10).

Population(s) Served

Over the past five years the Contraflow Research Project amassed over 13,000 minutes of footage. Forty percent has been cataloged. Our goal is to get the remaining 60% cataloged. We have two major documentary projects in the works; one pertaining to the Katrina Responders and the other to the people of the New Orleans Seventh Ward.
