The project’s intent is to break the mold of traditional storytelling — both in narrative form and aesthetic value. Mychal Sargent, a UO graduate, hosts the series and brings his unconventional perspective to the project.

A fundamental objective of NW Stories is to engage audiences in new ways through emphasizing transparency. The team will use social media to share behind-the-scenes vignettes about how the stories come together, allowing audiences to follow, engage and influence the production process. Individual stories will be viewable here in the coming months. Watch it unfold on this webpage.
