How to Conduct an Oral History
Many of us want to record our families’ stories—straight from the source! But what makes a good oral history? And how can you ensure your recording will be useful for generations to come?
In this session of MOCA’s preserving family heritage workshop series, Richard Cheu will teach you how to record and organize oral histories. Topics covered will include recording mechanics, equipment, metadata and legal considerations, and interviewing techniques. The first hour will be presentation, and the final 30 minutes will be reserved for hands-on practice. Come with any questions you have about oral histories and interviewing. This is a great way to spend your lunch break.
Don’t forget to make an appointment with the MOCA Collections team to digitize your family photos, paper documents, and/or 2-D mementos 11" x 17" or smaller.
Tickets: Free with RSVP. RSVP required!
