Eyes on Haiti

Collaborative Reporting on the Haitian Community in Boston & Beyond

Welcome to Open Park's latest collaborative news project - "Eyes on Haiti" - which lets journalists and media producers covering the residents and diaspora of post-earthquake Haiti connect, exchange and co-produce news tools and stories.

"Eyes on Haiti" - is an open source collaborative journalism platform on Open Park's website with a set of new media tools for all journalists and multimedia producers covering the Haiti earthquake and reconstruction. It lets them use this shared space with OP reporters to provide collaborative coverage of the US-Haitian community and recovery process in Boston and other US cities. It also offers a new way in which Open Park's "Eyes on Haiti" integrates with other C4FCM and Media Lab Haiti-related civic communication projects.
