In celebration of March’s Women’s History Month, The Grand Rapids Humanities Council, in collaboration with Calvin College, invites area women to record their stories in the Great Women, Great Voices Project. Women will be interviewed by a family member or friend for approximately 30 minutes in Calvin’s DeVos Communication Center to tell and preserve the important stories of thier life experiences and family history.
Women of all ages are encouraged to participate and to include as many family members and friends as desired. Each intervew will be videorecorded, and all participants will receive a DVD of the session. Each participant will also receive sample questions and interview techniques prior to the recording session to help with preparation.
Interviews will be scheduled for March 8, 10, 11, 12 and 15. There is no cost to participate and the program is open to the public, but registration is required. Participants should call 774-1776 to register.
This program is made possible in part by grants from the Nokomis Foundation and the Michigan Humanities Council and with the generous support of Calvin College.
