Core Sound Waterfowl Museum's Coastal Voices will offer a half-day workshop, "Telling Stories Through Images and Voices" on Sunday, October 1. The program will present learning opportunities for local photographers and community historians to gain skills in best practices in photojournalism, interviewing and storytelling.
Special guests from the NC Newsroom Cooperative, along with Baxter Miller, Ryan Stancil, Barbara Garrity-Blake and others from across the region will lead the presentations. This workshop is part of the Core Sound Museum's "In Harm's Way" project that will include an exhibition and online research archive of storm history. The museum is now collecting family photographs from storms and weather events, as well as oral histories, documents and artifacts from hurricanes that have shaped our local communities.
This workshop is free and open to all who are interested. The Coastal Voices oral history team is always looking for new participants to contribute to Core Sound Museum collections, seasoned participants to refresh their skills, and folks who are simply interested in oral history and photography.
The workshop will take place at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center on Harkers Island. Lunch will be provided. Limited overnight accommodations are available if needed. For more information, please email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Pam Morris at the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum and Heritage Center (252-728-1500) to learn more.
Also, check out our freshly launched project called "The Rising," which will document people's experiences with environmental and climatic change.
