Have a story to tell? Want to create a live performance and radio broadcast? The New Mexico History Museum and Viewpoint Productions invite you to delve into your personal archive of memories, writings, and images by joining them for a weekend workshop to craft your story relating to the counterculture era. The result will be a public presentation, potluck, a live or produced community radio broadcast, and an on-line presence. The 1960s–70s ignited a unique brand of social activism, alternative lifestyles, and artistic expression. Younger community members who identify with these themes are also encouraged to participate.
Apply to participate in the Turn On, Tune In storytelling project in Silver City. Groups will be limited to ten participants (ages 19 and up) and will begin with a Friday, September 29 evening presentation followed by a two-day workshop on Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1. The followup community event will be on October 14, and the whole community is invited to attend, no registration necessary. Come and share stories!
Turn On, Tune In is a public program in concert with the New Mexico History Museum’s exhibition Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest (open through February 11, 2018) led by co-facilitators Judy Goldberg, independent radio producer/educator; and Meredith Davidson, co-curator of the exhibition. This program is sponsored in part by the Museum of New Mexico Foundation.
The counterculture era holds a treasure trove of history. Your personal experiences are part of that legacy and can expand our understanding of the impact of those times. This project will explore counterculture’s relevance and how it may inspire us today.
