On November 27, 2023, Hibakusha Stories, in collaboration with the New York Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (NYCAN) and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) produced The New Manhattan Project: A Concert for Nuclear Abolition at the Japan Society in New York City. With music direction by Sam Sadigursky and Noah Diamond as tour guide, the concert was a journey to discover the nuclear legacy that New York City uniquely claims.Short videos of sites on the Nuclear NYC Map interwove with live performances by Sam Sadigursky, Nathan Koci, New York Taiko Aiko Kai, Meg Okura and MARK Harmony, a group of young singers from the Marshall Islands whose families were on the frontlines of environmental and cultural devastation caused by 67 atmospheric nuclear tests conducted by the US Government. The concert highlighted the creativity and activism in NYC that fuels the movement for nuclear abolition. The event was the opening cultural event as Mexico hosted the 2nd Meeting of States Parties to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) at UN Headquarters. These are the videos that were created for the map and screened at the concert. NMPC Program (PDF)
