As part of Waterford City and County Council’s Diverse Waterford Oral History Project, we are inviting community groups and individuals interested in oral history to a workshop with Dr. Tomás Mac Conmara, Oral Historian and Author at Dungarvan Library, Davitt’s Quay, Dungarvan on Friday 9th December from 2pm – 4pm.
This workshop is an overview to illustrate the key aspects involved in oral history collection, preservation and use, within the Diverse Waterford Methodology
This workshop will include:
• Presentation on the “Diverse Waterford Oral History Project”
• Ethics & Legalities of oral history
• Life Cycle and other approaches to collection
• Research and Preparation
• Controlling the interview environment
• Interview Skills including demonstration of audio recording
• Associative Collection and administration of your interview. The workshop will be interactive and will allow time for discussion. It will also be supported by illustrative audio clips, drawn from both Diverse Waterford interviews and the presenter’s collections.
This is a free workshop but places limited. Booking essential.
This is a joint initiative of Waterford Libraries, Waterford City and County Archive and Creative Waterford. Please share with community groups who may be interested.
