“This class was an exploration of a different kind of listening and a different type of interview. Through the specific class assignment and Elaine’s expert coaching, I was able to produce a compelling narrative from an interview with someone I admire deeply.”
Do you love listening to people’s stories? Are there individuals in our South Sound community (or beyond) who have great stories to share? Join us as we continue to gather stories from community members, between 60-90, as part of The Third Thirty: A Community Oral History Project. We will read, watch, and listen to wonderful stories, build our listening and interview skills, and gain the tools needed to interview/edit an oral history to share (with permission) at a public event at the end of the course. You’ll have reading/viewing homework, and you’ll need access to a computer and a recording device (such as a Smartphone or tablet). Editing and technology help available! General Public/Member: $98/$92 For more info or to register, call 360.586.6181 or stop by the Olympia or Lacey Senior Center. Registration starts March 4th.
