Brooklyn Historical Society (Brooklyn, NY 11201-2711)
Paul Pearson (Project Director: June 2015 to present)
Waterfront Exhibition: Water Log and Visitor Vistas

Production of two large-scale immersive, digital experiences to complement an exhibition exploring the history of Brooklyn’s waterfront.

Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) seeks a production grant in the amount of $400,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Digital Projects for the Public program for Water Log and Visitor Vistas—two critical digital components of Waterfront, a long-term transmedia exhibition, and visitor experience that will bring the dynamic story of Brooklyn’s changing waterfront to visitors, both on-site and through the Internet. Waterfront immerses visitors in the engaging and deeply relevant history of Brooklyn’s waterfront and casts them as influential players in shaping its future. Crucial to this goal, the two proposed digital features have been developed to serve the needs of both local residents and national and international visitors—groups with different backgrounds, interests, knowledge bases, languages, and motivations for visiting.
