Update on the Roosevelt Oral History Project
As you may remember, KBOO was awarded funding from the Regional Arts & Culture Council for a collaborative project with Roosevelt High School. Six students have are participating in the project.
Brooke Palmer, Ryan White, and I have been working weekly with the kids, and they have finished conducting their oral history interviews. We will begin the editing process this week, and also begin looking forward to script writing. We have made a promo for the program they'll be airing on May 19th from 6-7pm, that you will hear on the KBOO airwaves soon!
They are also preparing to be guests on April 28th edition of The Underground, the monthly program hosted by the KBOO Youth Collective. The Roosevelt students will be interviewed about their projects and will play samples from their 'work in progress.' Tyrin will learn the basics of mixing to be Board Operator for the May 19th show, and Solomon will be observing and learning how the Youth Collective hosts the program, which wil be his role on May 19th.
We are excited to present you the work we've been preparing, and have already succeeded in learning much about audio, listening, and the world. Thanks again, RACC, for the ability to take advantage of this opportunity!
