History Museum Seeking Participants For Digital Storytelling Workshop

NMHM News:
Turn On, Tune In, a New Mexico History Museum (NMHM) 3-day Digital Storytelling Workshop to produce stories about and inspired by 1960s and 1970s counter culture in New Mexico. We are seeking applicants to participate.
Inspired by the revolutionary movements of the 1960’s, we are looking for people who want to tell their own stories of the times. We are working with five cities around the state: Las Vegas, Taos, Dixon, Placitas, and Silver City. We are seeking two members of each community to participate in this fall workshop:
  • An individual who lived in New Mexico between 1960-1975 and have personal stories connecting them to “Counter Culture.”
  • A younger residents (roughly mid-30’s and younger) who currently connect with the themes around alternative living, civil rights, environmentalism, art as a form of activism, spirituality, and migration.
FREE Program, October 14-16, at the New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe, NM.; Application due to the museum by July 31.
Program Description: 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Summer of Love and the New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors is mounting an exhibit on the history of counter culture in New Mexico. Along with the exhibit the Museum is partnering with digital storytelling experts from StoryCenter to lead a cross-generational digital storytelling initiative.
Two inter-generational participants will be selected from five distinct NM communities (totaling ten participants) to craft personal stories, record their voices, and pull photos from their own scrapbooks to assemble a three-minute digital story. The stories from this workshop will become part of the Museum’s counter culture exhibit, opening in May 2017, to illustrate individuals’ roles in shaping history. The stories will offer New Mexican perspectives on the legacies we carry and the history we are creating today, as a result of those times.
