An interactive session where you will learn basic skills to enable you to record oral history interviews.
Participants will explore the benefits of oral history, how to use a recording device, how to conduct an Oral History interview and more. The training will be delivered with a focus on recording experiences of historic racism but the skills can be transferred to recording Oral History interviews on any topic.
Wednesday 31st January 2018 at 2 pm- 4 pm at Azuka, 67 Elsden Road, Wellingborough, NN8 1QD.
This is also your last chance to share your story and be part of Wellingborough’s history. If you would like to preserve your historical experience of racism or promoting equality in Wellingborough please get in touch as soon as possible as time is running out before the project ends. We will stop recording stories from Easter 2018 as the project ends in June 2018. Therefore, to avoid disappointment please get in contact with Siobhan or Jenny as soon as possible to find out more about the project and to book your interview. We have lots of transcripts and recordings so you are welcome to read/listen to one before participating to help you understand the project.
