When considering the launch of iNation, we thought, “What better place to catapult iNation into the world than Ellis Island?” So, we did it! The project launched with a huge 2-day live event on the Ellis Island National Monument. A wide variety of people came out to Ellis Island to share their stories, watch films, and witness the creation of a live mural. Groups from international schools, Adult ESL classes, Genealogy clubs, and the interactive storytelling community made it out to the island on two beautiful days in April. To round off the launch week of the project, we also pulled off a big iNation party in Manhattan, and participated in the TFI Interactive Day as part of the Tribeca Film festival.
