"A workshop designed to help people hone their skills in recording oral history may be the first of many.
The two-day seminar, held in Kerikeri recently, was led by Taina McGregor, Oral History Advisor, Maori at the Alexander Turnbull Library, and has earned rave reviews from participants on the pilot course according to organiser Atareiria Heihei of Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga. "
“It was also great to be able to share this knowledge with other people who are working with oral history, or who want to become more involved. We’re looking forward to holding more of these two day courses next year, and will publicise dates and times once details are finalised.”
A workshop on writing abstracts for recorded interviews is currently being organised for the new year.(more…)
