[HERE]SAY WATER STREET- a story cartography

St. John's is a landscape not only of streets and buildings, but of human experience -- this is what makes up the unique character of our city. The place is full of stories.

Where most maps offer you a satellite view or a graphic layout of the street grid, ours is a story map.

[HERE]SAY features personal stories set in specific locations in the Downtown. Take a walk on Water and look for the [HERE]SAY signs on the light poles. You'll see a phone number and a 3-digit code. Dial the number on your mobile phone, punch in the code, and hear a story about the spot where you're standing.

If you can't get to Water Street, choose a location on the web map and listen online.

We welcome more stories for this map. If you'd like to contribute a personal story or memory of something that happened on Water Street, please contact us.

[HERE]SAY is made by:
Chris Brookes (documentary maker)
Dale Jarvis (storyteller)
Mike Mouland (designer)
And all the storytellers

A Story Map of Water Street was installed June 2009.

This project thanks a Toronto-based oral history documentary project with story installations around the world.
