The first of six documentaries focused on telling the history of the core neighborhoods of Columbus airs this Monday night at 8 pm on WOSU TV. It is an amazing piece of work from WOSU producer Mary Rathke and our production team.  What is unique about this project is that anyone can be part of it. Simply go to www.columbusneighborhoods.org and contribute your story of growing up and living in central Ohio.  Pick one of 30 neighborhoods and upload video, images or just tell your story.  Create a gallery for all your stuff.  We’ve had an amazing reaction to this project across central Ohio and beyond:

The Columbus Dispatch featured a review of the Short North documentary.
The onCampus publication at Ohio State described the entire project well.
The Columbus publication 614 did a nice feature.

A public media “visionary” – Rob Patterson, who lives in Prince Edward Island described this innovative project as model for public stations across the country.

Tune in at 7:30 pm Monday for a half hour program about the entire project and at 8 pm for Columbus Neighborhoods: Short North.  Coming this fall, a profile of German Village! Let us know what you think.

    Grote (Donato’s Pizza) said it best, if you’re from the South End, it’s the South End; otherwise it’s the South Side.
