Unearthing Oral Histories


Thursday, November 15, 2018, 6:00pm to 9:00pm


PRX Podcast Garage, 267 Western Ave, Rear, Allston

Join us on Thursday November 15th, for Unearthing Oral Histories, an oral history workshop held at the PRX Podcast Garage in connection to the exhibit In Over My Head, now on view at the Harvard Ed Portal. Led by artist Thalassa Raasch, this introductory workshop will unpack the power of collecting and sharing oral histories. Participants will develop an understanding of what oral history is, how (and how not) to conduct an oral history interview, the necessary equipment, and the different methods of sharing oral histories. Whether you’re planning to interview a family member or the town gravedigger, this workshop will give you the skills and techniques you’ll need to hit the ground recording. Unearthing Oral Histories is open to beginning and intermediate audio storytellers, and anyone interested in learning more about oral history.  

Tickets are $25 for the general public and $10 for Ed Portal and Podcast Garage members.  Please be sure to select that you’re a member when purchasing your ticket. Scholarships are also available.
