CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS WITH TECHNICAL SKILLS
TO SUPPORT THE
ORAL HISTORY COMPONENT
BCA "BLOOMINGDALE VILLAGE SQUARE" PROJECT
This Project is funded largely by the Humanities Council of DC. The Project seeks to be responsive to the 'neighborhood character' goals of the DC Mid City East Small Area Plan, namely:
- To support and reinforce neighblorhood identity
- To showcase a unique neighborhood and corridor identity and enhanced sense of 'place'.
One of the ways that the Project will address these goals is through the conduct of videotaped oral history interviews of the diverse residents of Bloomingdale (elders, adults, youth, oldtimers, newcomers, and persons of diverse sexual preference and race/ethnicity). The interviews will focus on persons' varying experiences of Bloomingdale and its changes over time. The interviews, in various versions, will be archived, placed on the BCA website, presented to community groups throughout the City, and placed on a planned digital community bulletin board.
The response to calls for volunteers/nominations of persons to be interviewed has been tremendous! We expect to begin conduct of interviews in about 2 weeks.
However we are in need of volunteer technical experts who can ensure high quality production of videotaped interviews. Specifically, we seek:
- A Chief Videographer who will provide creative and technical direction for the videotaped interview effort
- Videotape Editors
