Event: September 18th at 6 PM: Oral History for Social Justice

A chance to meet Pacific Northwest-based oral historians and other practitioners using narrative/story methods to spur social change, to learn about interesting local work, and to socialize. We’ll spend some time hearing about each other’s stories and projects, and also discuss how Groundswell can best support social justice oral history work in the region.

Please bring some food to share!

To connect with each other and build momentum for Groundswell, an emerging nationwide network of oral historians, activists, cultural workers, community organizers, and documentary artists that use oral history to further movement building and transformative social change. The mission of Groundswell is to build the creativity and power of social justice movements by providing mutual support, training, and resources in the practice of grassroots oral history. We think potlucks are key to that!

We’ll meet in the loft space at the Black Coffee Coop (501 E Pine St, Seattle, Washington 98122)
