Sun Valley Neighborhood Memory Project Fellowship

History Colorado is seeking applications for a community fellow to join the Sun Valley Neighborhood Memory Project, part of the Museum of Memory Program. Museum of Memory's goal is to collaborate with Colorado's communities to co-author their shared stories and explore their past on their own terms, from their own perspectives, and in their own voices through the telling of the community's stories. The goal of the Sun Valley Neighborhood Memory Project is to engage with new and older residents of Sun Valley to tell and share stories about the neighborhood, collect and preserve their stories and share these through a community event, exhibit or community art. This project is in partnership with the Sun Valley Kitchen and Community Center.

We invite students, community organizers, community storytellers and community members engaged in the history of Sun Valley to collaborate with History Colorado and the Sun Valley Kitchen in the implementation of this meaningful work. The fellowship period is from May 2022-August 2024.
