Listening in Place Project

"With so many of us in seclusion for our own safety and the safety of us all, how can we find strength in each other?" Led by this question, the Listening in Place Project (launched by the Vermont Folklife Center) offers three unique ways to "create[e] a living document of how Vermonters are coping with this [COVID-19] global reality." These sub-projects include a collaborative sound archive, a virtual storytelling experience, and a handmade face mask media gallery. The Sound Archive, which includes both interviews and everyday sounds, preserving perspectives of the world during COVID-19. The Virtual Story Circles offers an online inclusive space where participants share experiences via video conference. Virtual Story Circles are currently limited to Vermont residents, but readers from elsewhere can download a "Story Circle Guide" in PDF form to learn more about the idea and launch a similar program in their community. The Show Us Your Masks! page includes a gallery of creative takes on COVID-19 protective gear. Interested in submitting something to the archive? Check out the Submit Materials page for details and instructions. And, do not let inexperience hold you back from participating, as the site has multiple pages (Recording in Person, Recording Remotely, Interviewing Advice, and Prompts) that provide tips and guidance. Finally, the COVID-19 Safety page highlights how to safely participate in the project.
