The Dill Pickle Club, Portland’s creative cultural club, presents Voices of Portland, this Thursday, May 26, 2011.
Voices of Portland documents the history of Portland’s neighborhoods through oral histories conducted in the mid 1970s. Self-published by Christine Emenc with a CETA grant in 1976, the book presents a conversational and non-authoritative telling of changes in the city. Celebrate the reprinting of this out-of-print book with a panel discussion on Portland’s development, approaches to oral histories and ethnography.
The speakers are Christine Ermenc – Executive Director, Windsor Historical Society (CT), Oral Historian, Author; Rozzell Medina – Director, Chiron Studies program at Portland State University; Judith Mowry & Celeste Carey – Restorative Listening Project; and Arlie Sommer – Eliot Oral History Project.
Voices of Portland takes place at Project Grow (2156 N Williams) at 7pm. Admission is a sliding scale ($0-10) donation. The book will be available for purchase too ($12 for members, $15 for non-members).
