Project Lab: Oral History Experiments


This cross-disciplinary workshop will be useful for those at all stages of oral history-related projects who wish to work in dialogue with other makers. Students should come to this workshop with a sketch, dream or project-in-motion, which may be experimental or traditional in form. Examples of projects include: sound installation, radio documentary, public health studies, community archives, longform journalism, and more.

Designed as a focused brainstorming and problem-solving workshop, our days will be divided between daily check-ins, individual consultation with the instructor, and sessions with guest artists, leaving some time to work independently or explore Hudson’s swimming spots and fruit orchards. Documentarians, writers, artists, academics and others are all welcome. Experience with oral history methodology is assumed.

Instructor: Suzanne Snider
Guest Artists: Sarah Kramer and Todd Shalom
