What stories does your family have to tell? Are you interested in learning about the art of the oral history interview and how to document traditions in your family and community?


Join Kristin Catherwood, Intangible Cultural Heritage Officer with Heritage Saskatchewan, at the Village of Val Marie office on Tuesday May 15, 9:3o to 4:30 pm (with a break at noon), to find out how to collect and record oral history and oral traditions and how to use the information you’ve collected in projects.

In this workshop you’ll learn the basics of Intangible Cultural Heritage, how to conduct an oral history interview, proper recording techniques, and what to do with the information once you’ve collected it, including how to use it in projects.

The workshop is free for participants to attend and pre-registration is required. You can register by email at ich@heritagesask.ca or by phone at 306-869-7353.
