Many institutions worldwide are endorsing May 16th as the first International Day for Sharing Life Stories.
Bookmark www.ausculti.org to know about the events to occur that day as endorsing institutions get organized!
I quote from the site:
“ We invite you and/or your organization to endorse our joint call for Listen! – International Day for Sharing Life Stories, on May 16th 2008. The day will be an opportunity for people around the world to gather in community halls, classrooms, public parks, theaters, auditoriums, as well websites, email exchanges, and virtual environments to hear each other’s stories.
We are part of an international movement of practitioners who view listening, collecting and sharing life stories as a critical process in democratizing culture and promoting social change. We want this day to be especially dedicated to celebrating and promoting Life Story projects that have made a difference within neighborhoods, communities, and societies as a whole. We have written to you because we feel you share this commitment.”
