At the Groundswell: Oral History for Movement Building Network Gathering, we will explore how the process and products of oral history can empower, mobilize, connect, educate, and inspire in our movements for justice. This two-day convening will bring together practitioners from diverse communities to share our experiences using oral history in a movement-building context. We will explore what is and is not working in our practices and explore why. We will also look at the ethical, technical, and practical concerns inherent to our work and consider what it means to apply an anti-oppression framework to oral history. Finally, we’ll map out how the growing Groundswell network can best support and encourage activist oral history work, with a focus on work that is happening in Detroit. Participants will come away with a better understanding of the transformative potential of oral history, concrete tools, ideas, and resources for their own work, and new relationships for ongoing learning and support. This network gathering takes place over two days, June 17th-18th.

Please note: this network gathering is at capacity and no longer accepting new participants. Please contactinfo@oralhistoryforsocialchange.org with any questions.
