Scarritt-Bennett Center says
Join Alysia Burton Steele for Oral History 101: A Beginner’s Toolbox. This is a full-day workshop built to equip individuals, organizations, or groups interested in documenting personal, social, or regional histories with introductory techniques and best practices. Not only is oral history an important resource for documenting the personal and collective memories of families, social movements, historical events, or the histories of a group or organization from the lived experiences of everyday people, but it can also serve as an important tool for social change, community education, and for exploring regional or cultural identity. The workshop will offer accessible information regarding best practices in conducting an oral history project including pre-interview research and preparation, interviewing strategies, use of audio/video technology, questions of proper use and ethics, and tips on developing collected stories into a project for circulation, or for an archive. The program will also provide information on local and regional networks pertaining to oral history, and resources for tying oral histories into radio, curriculum, exhibits, websites, programming, and beyond.

This event is part of our Phenomenal Woman series, an annual celebration of the contributions of women in art, politics, religion, science and social justice inspired by the life and work of Maya Angelou.
