ONA Local is coming to New Orleans, and want to celebrate by spotlighting the best digital storytelling innovations going on in the city right now with a Lightning Talks session. Come tell us about a data journalism project you’ve been working on, a new app or tool you’re developing to get information into the hands of residence, how your team rocked election coverage, or how you’ve been experimenting with a new platform. Tell us about a time you failed and what you learned from it. Tell us about how you’re engaging your audience in new ways. We want to hear it all – in 5 minutes or less.
