Oral History Weekend Great Experience

Oral History Weekend 001 Do not use eyes closed (Small)

An Oral History Weekend Experience Seminar and Workshop  helped to inspire groups around the State to get working on their own oral history projects. People travelled from Canberra, Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Oberon and the surrounding local districts to join in the seminar and workshop.

We hosted the event with support from the Oral History Association Australia NSW and their trainers Trish Levido and Sandra Blamey with funding from a Country Arts Support Program Grant. The packed program included best practice standards, guidelines, review of digital equipment, interview, listening and narrator practice as well as planning an oral history project framework. Thank you to everyone who came along and we look forward to listening to your oral history collections in the future! For more information on courses check out the website: http://www.ohaa.org.au/

Orange has an active oral history group which meets at Orange City Library on the third Monday of the month at 10am.  The next meeting will be held on Monday 19th August.  All interested people are most welcome to attend.
