This is the second of a two-day course. Day one is on July 8.
Alexander Turnbull Library Outreach Services is offering workshops for people considering using oral history in their work, community or personal projects. The workshops will be tutored by Judith Fyfe, oral historian and lawyer, and Lynette Shum, Oral History Adviser, Alexander Turnbull Library.
By the end of the workshop participants should have a basic understanding of how to tackle an oral history project from planning right through to archiving.
All equipment is provided and all participants receive comprehensive guides and resources.
The course is limited to 12 participants. The fee includes morning and afternoon tea.
Day two: Recording seriously. This workshop builds on Day One, reviewing work completed and covering in more detail interview techniques, project planning and technical, ethical, and legal issues. Attendance at Day One is a prerequisite.
