Oral History Interviews

Listening and Understanding

We train others on how to effectively collect and preserve the testimonies of the everyday person.

How does one go about systematically collecting, transcribing and preserving the undocumented and unwritten testimonies and memories of the everyday person?

My Community’s workshops empower and equip participants with the technical and soft skills needed to successfully capture human memory and sort through the stories which define an individual’s life.

Facilitators teach participants how to formulate central questions, conduct interviews and prioritise content. They use case studies to demonstrate how information can be effectively organised, presented and stored.
