StoryCorps is an oral history project with a mission to provide all Americans the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. The Story Corps MobileBooth is a trailer outfitted with a recording studio that travels the country year-round collecting stories. In partnership with Radio Arte, the booth is scheduled to be in Chicago from May 20th to June 26th, it will be stationed in Pilsen at the National Museum of Mexican Art, 1852 West 19th Street.
The folks at StoryCorps have reserved a few slots for our Proyecto Latina family. So, consider interviewing a friend, family member or neighbor. We are definitely going to be scheduling our own interviews. The dates are:
-Friday, June 4 @4:30 p.m.
-Monday, June 7 @ 12:30 p.m.
-Sunday, June 13 @11:30 a.m.
You can reserve one of these time slots by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know Proyecto Latina sent you. If these times don’t work for you, inquire about other time slots.
Donations: StoryCorps interviews are free, but we do ask all participants for a voluntary donation of any amount at the end of their interview. Donations will help StoryCorps give more people the opportunity to record their stories and can also be made online at www.storycorps.org/donate.
