An Evening with StoryCorps Founder Dave Isay
Wednesday, August 5, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm| $10 - $45
StoryCorps Founder Dave Isay will visit in August and describe the evolution of the program that has created a national storytelling movement. Expanding the widespread community support for such local preservation projects as the Mahaiwe Theater and the Great Barrington Fairgrounds, this talk highlights another way to celebrate the preservation of family and community history.
The core of StoryCorps is listening. It’s about honoring another human being by simply listening to them.
The evening will feature pre-recorded stories from our community. We will also launch a three-day opportunity (Aug 7-9) for people to interview and record stories with loved ones—both through a formal StoryCorps recording process and through a supported use of the newly launched StoryCorps mobile app. Ticket pricing supports the costs of these recording days. Details regarding the opportunity to sign up to record with StoryCorps will be confirmed shortly.
