Free oral history training by Nutkhut, open to all

Open Call: Nutkhut is offering free oral history training to members of the public as part of their new arts and heritage project, Girmit.

Girmit is a Nutkhut arts and heritage initiative focusing on the indentured labour system in Fiji between 1870 and 1920. Through the project, we’re looking to delve into this forgotten but essential part of history by sharing personal stories and so we’re offering free oral history training to those interested in building a new skill and being part of this unique project.

The training will broadly explore the following:

  • What is oral history and understanding memory

  • Who to interview

  • Approaches to questions

  • An introduction to recording equipment

  • Dos and don’ts of interviewing

  • Practice interview

  • Documentation, including summarising, transcription, copyright, archiving

We’re especially interested in hearing from people of Mauritian, Trinidadian and Guyanese heritage, as well as British-Fijian heritage, whose ancestors were indentured labourers. This oral history training is organised jointly by National Life Stories at the British Library and the Oral History Society.

If you’re interested in free oral history training and learning more about becoming part of this project, please fill in this form by the 22 August: https://bit.ly/39xEBaV
