Clark County Stories: How We Came to This Place – Telling Stories with your Family Heirlooms

Event Description

Join the Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) for an unique workshop focusing on telling stories with items passed down over the years. Whether you’ve collected items more recently or have objects from across your family tree, learn to record and share what you (and your ancestors) have saved for future generations. Join for a discussion about personal storytelling, the history of objects, and the power they hold over us. This 90-minute workshop will include short writing exercises, as well as ideas for where to start.
“Clark County Stories: How We Came to this Place” is a series of outreach and community-building workshops and conversations featuring residents whose experiences have been under-represented in past CCHM exhibits: urban Indians, Latina/o, African American, Asian, Muslim, LGBTQ, blind, and deaf communities. The series aims to have conversations to identify bearers of these stories of change, foster community dialogue, and facilitate mutual understanding.
