Oral History Workshop from the State Archives of North Carolina

Contributed by Donna Kelly

The State Archives welcomes you to join us at one of our two upcoming workshops to learn about oral history and the oral history projects we are currently working on:

  • Saturday October 26 at the Outer Banks History Center – Manteo
  • Saturday November 2 at the Western Regional Archives – Asheville

Each workshop will offer 2 sessions:

  • Session A – a 2-hour session on general oral history best practices, meant for anyone who is thinking about starting their own oral history project. (10am-12pm)
  • Session B* – a 2 ½ hour session on how to be a volunteer interviewer for State Archives projects. (1:00pm-3:30pm)

*Please note, if you plan to attend Session B you must also attend Session A.

We are currently collecting interviews for two major projects:

  • “She Changed the World” – focused on interviewing notable women around the State
  • Military Collection interviews – designed to document and provide access to the memories and experiences of military servicemen and servicewomen from the state of North Carolina

Capacity is limited and registration is on a first come, first serve basis, so sign up today!
