The truth is, I'm a very lucky guy, but, I'm not who I thought I’d be. Never thought I'd be a man living in California. Never thought I'd be happily married and have joyously quirky kids, work in a regular office with a desk and a keyboard, spend so much time on buses. The best things develop over time and not always according to plan. It's been the same for 3200 Stories.
3200 Stories was launched in 2011 to nurture the vibrant, compelling voices of our far-flung community. Over the past year we’ve tried lots of things. We’ve created opportunities for JCCSF members and staff to share their thoughts and stories. We’ve worked in partnership with organizations like the Contemporary Jewish Museum and Citizen Film. But mostly we’ve spent the last 18 months capturing the idiosyncratic, the poignant and the sublime—of both the transcendent and the ridiculous varieties—through the eyes, ears and hearts of our growing community of creators.
Like life, 3200 Stories has evolved into something beyond my expectations. I couldn't have anticipated the breadth and depth of what we could create together. And with so much compelling content pouring into and out of our “second space” – our virtual venue – we took on a renovation project and are delighted to welcome you to the New 3200 Stories...take a look around.
Check out our themes - we'll always feature six collaborations on a topic or idea. All keep them fresh with new content added all the time and new themes rotating in as interest evolves.
Investigate our authors too...they are the lifeblood of the experience. I hope to see your name up there soon.
I'm glad to be able to share this with you. I can't wait to see what it becomes as we come together to share ourselves and learn to connect and interact in this new kind of public space.
