The Over-the-Rhine Museum is excited to offer our Oral History interviewer training! Our board member Dann Woellert will show you how to use our recording equipment, how to deal with permission forms, and what kind of questions to ask during interviews. After this, you will be well prepared to conduct interviews for our Oral History Project with people who have lived, worked, worshiped, and played in Over-the-Rhine.
The training is free, breakfast will be provided. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for further questions and to sign up!
Our Oral History Project records the histories of Over-the-Rhine through personal storytelling. Our goal is to collect, preserve, interpret, and share these incredibly rich stories. We record their stories of the neighborhood’s past to give us all a perspective on the breadth and depth of histories of residents and those who’ve passed through Over-the-Rhine. These stories will be used to help us interpret the Museum site, and will be shared digitally so that teachers, researchers, and the general public can listen to the stories of Over-the-Rhine.
