The Urban Appalachian Community Coalition invites you to join us this upcoming Monday, September 27, on Zoom for Harvesting our Stories: Urban Appalachian Story Gathering Project Launch.
The idea is pretty simple—we are asking people to sit down with a Cincinnati-area urban Appalachian friend, colleague, or family member and talk to them about their Appalachian background, record the conversation on their smartphone (or on Zoom if you’re sitting down in different locations), and send the recording to UACC to post on our website. Originally, we had hoped this would be an in-person event, but well, you know why it is not! The event will include:
We would love to "see" you there. Registration required: https://tinyurl.com/harvestyourstories
- A "Video Quilt" presentation of finished interviews that will provide you with a better idea of what this project is all about
- An explanation of the process—from obtaining a release form to actually uploading your interview
- Ideas for potential interviewees
- Conducting a practice interview of your own
- A Q&A session to prepare you for your own next steps as a community story gatherer
