Everyone attending really enjoyed the first training session with Eastside Community Heritage about how to conduct oral history interviews. Judith Garfield guided us through an interactive and practical session, which covered everything from using the recording equipment to how to nod and smile during an interview. Everyone especially enjoyed little one minute talks about themselves and it was very interesting to see what people chose to reveal about themselves within a minute. We had people ¬†presenting themselves as ‘observers of life’ and ‘football fans’.

There will be more sessions with Judith in the coming months, so stay tuned if you want to attend!
