Over the past 7 years, +20,000 people have shared their stories through the Strangers Project. These stories offer a brief glimpse into the intimacies of everyday lives, bridging meaningful connections between strangers. By creating a place for stories, we create space to understand each other and ourselves. Up until now, the Strangers Project has mostly lived in parks or galleries in New York City. Our goal is to bring the project to new communities and strangers all across the country.
The Strangers Project has always been possible because of the support of all of you who love reading these stories. We're reaching out to you to make this happen. Please contribute to our campaign, and don't forget to share with everyone you know that loves stories as much as you do. You can learn more and contribute here!
What's Your Story?In 2009, Brandon Doman, who has always been curious about the people with whom we share our world, sat at Espresso Royale and decided to ask passersby a simple question: “What’s your story?” Providing only paper and pens, Doman created an exploratory space that instantly intrigued people to share their stories anonymously. Now, more than 18,000 stories later, the Strangers Project has become a momentous movement, engaging strangers of all ages and backgrounds to reflect, rejoice, heal, and connect through words.
