In place of May meeting, Oral History Interviewing Workshop in Westmorland

Posted by eastsidehistorymadison on May 15, 2013

Sorry folks, there will be no East Side History Club meeting this month, because co-organizers Ann Waidelich and Sarah White are involved in this workshop in Westmorland. We invite you to join us — you could learn to collect stories from your family members or neighbors.


Collecting Voices: Oral History Interviewing Workshop

Saturday, May 18th, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon, Sequoya Branch Library, 4340 Tokay Blvd. Free!

Troy Reeves, head of the Oral History Program for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Archives will teach the essential steps for conducting a successful oral history interview.

“Collecting Voices” is part of a volunteer oral history project underway in Westmorland. The public is welcome to attend; we hope to stimulate similar activities across Madison. This project is supported by Dane Arts with additional funds from The Evjue Foundation, Inc., charitable arm of The Capital Times.
