Neighborhood Memory Projects
These memory projects highlight neighborhoods and local communities around Colorado, from historic areas of the capitol to rural communities on the prairie.
Youth Memory Projects
Youth Memory Projects are youth-centered writing and storytelling programs geared towards elevating young voices within their communities and neighborhoods. These projects use community narrative, writing, storytelling, and art to create oral history projects through which the young of a community reanimate their local history. Youth serve as community historians, developing project objectives, designing oral history protocol, interviewing their community members, and creating a final project to share with the community.
The youth leading these projects gain experience collaborating with peers and interacting with the larger community--while engaging the past as a way to move their community forward.
