Stoop Stories Children's Museum Exhibit

Community Project:

Stoop Stories 
is a documentary storytelling project designed to connect, support, and celebrate our NYC neighbors, especially those hardest hit by the pandemic and systemic inequities. 

What We're Asking: 

Stoop Stories is a self-funded labor of love for New York City. This passion project was born out of a crisis, yet it is a continuous vehicle for uplifting and empowering communities. We are fundraising for our children's museum exhibit. Your contributions will go towards exhibit design, photographic printing, and educational & marketing materials. Any amount raised over our goal will help sustain and scale our ongoing project. We welcome the monetary and creative support of fellow stoop and storytelling lovers. 

Since April 2020, Stoop Stories has produced hundreds of features from New York families, essential workers, small business owners, and activists. We call out injustice, while celebrating silver linings and moments of joy. Our collection includes everyday New Yorkers and notable natives alike, such as Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams on the steps of Borough Hall, and Black Trans activist Qween Jean on the stoop at The Stonewall Inn.

Our Thanks:

In appreciation for helping us meet our exhibit funding goals you will receive a signed Stoop Stories print.
