Do you have a personal story about life on the Gaspé Coast that you’d like to share? Can you think of a person whose stories you’d like to hear and help share with others?
Learn how to preserve the special memories and experiences of English-speaking Gaspesians by taking part in a StoryNet Contributors Workshop, hosted by the Gaspesian British Heritage Village in New Richmond on Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free and lunch will be provided.
Sponsored by the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN), StoryNet is an oral-history project that aims to record a collection of stories from everyday people in Quebec’s English-speaking communities. Once completed, the collection will be archived and presented for listening on the StoryNet website.
Come share your ideas for topics and themes during the workshop’s morning session with professional radio storyteller Susan Woodfine. Stories involving special people and memorable events from the past are welcome, as are stories about contemporary life.
Interested in recording someone else’s story? Find out how the Village can help you make broadcast-quality digital sound recordings of your own. The workshop’s afternoon session will focus on the art of listening, interviewing techniques and the use of digital sound recorders.
For more information, to register or submit a story idea in writing, please contact Kim Harrison at 418-392-4487 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
