Now Accepting Grant Applications – DC Oral History Collaborative

The 2019 DC Oral History Collaborative requests for proposals are here! Now in its third year, the DCOHC will continue to fund new oral history projects about Washington, DC. Past projects have interviewed: Asian-American restaurateurs, members of a venerable literature club, recent Latino immigrants, formerly incarcerated women, Howard University nursing students and faculty, residents of Fort Totten and Southwest DC, and many more.

For 2019, the DCOHC is issuing a new RFP for public projects and events that use existing oral history collections. Potential project types may include, but are not limited to: exhibitions, listening stations, written research, film/video, curricula for K-12 and higher education, websites, and computer applications. The application deadline is January 25th, 2019.

About the DC Oral History Collaborative:

The DC Oral History Collaborative was initiated in 2016 as a partnership project of the Historical Society of Washington, DC, HumanitiesDC, with the DC Public Library as the sponsoring agency. The initiative responds to a growing need to preserve unrecorded Washington history that may be lost as communities experience demographic shifts, as older residents pass away, and as stories that once were written now may only live in digital media. The Collaborative aims to document and preserve the stories and memories of residents by making existing oral history recordings more accessible, and giving residents the training and financial resources they need to conduct quality interviews.
