Two-Day Immigrant Stories Workshop

Two-Day Workshop
Wednesday, June 28 and Thursday, June 29

The workshop is free, but space is limited. All participants must register here:

Come to a free, two-day digital storytelling workshop and create a brief video that tells your or your family’s immigrant story.

On June 28 and 29, staff from the Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) will teach a free Immigrant Stories workshop at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute. They’ll guide you through the process of making a video with your own script and images. You’ll be able to share your video with future generations as part of the Immigrant Stories collection. No previous experience is required. Making your own video is a great way to learn how to teach others, including students and members of community groups.

Immigrant Stories helps people tell, share, and preserve personal or family stories about immigration. You will use the free Immigrant Stories website, that allows anyone anywhere to create an original 3-5 minute digital story from start to finish.

All Immigrant Stories will be professionally preserved by the IHRC Archives, North America’s oldest and largest archive of immigrant life.
