StoryCorps, a renowned nonprofit organization celebrating the stories of everyday Americans, will record interviews in Santa Monica, Calif. from Jan. 5 – Feb. 7, 2020 as part of its cross-country MobileBooth tour. Having collected more than 65,000 interviews from Americans in all 50 states, StoryCorps has gathered one of the largest single collections of human voices ever recorded.
StoryCorps’ MobileBooth—an Airstream trailer outfitted with a recording studio—will be parked on the Third Street Promenade at Wilshire Boulevard. Reservations are now available and may be made at storycorps.org/stops/mobile-stop-santa-monica-ca. Additional appointments will be available on Jan. 7, 2020.
This “stop” is made possible by a first-of-its-kind partnership between Santa Monica College (SMC) and its Emeritus Program; the Corporation for Public Broadcasting; SMC’s NPR station KCRW (89.9 FM); and Downtown Santa Monica, Inc. Sponsorship is provided by The Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows Santa Monica.
In StoryCorps’ MobileBooth, two people are able to record a meaningful conversation with one another about who they are, what they’ve learned in life, and how they want to be remembered. A trained StoryCorps facilitator guides them through the interview process. At the end of each 40-minute recording session, participants receive a downloadable link to their conversation. With participant permission, a second copy is archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress for future generations to hear.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
