Join The History Center in Tompkins County on First Friday Gallery Night for a unique oral history experience of women's voices in Tompkins County. The Women's Voices in Tompkins County Oral History Collection includes over 60 interviews from #TompkinsWomen speaking about their lived experiences in the community. Clips from more than 30 of these interviews showcasing the diversity of women's lives and and experiences have been selected. Visitors will be able to scan QR codes placed throughout the Exhibit Hall and hear these #TompkinsWomen discuss their lives in their own voice.
Visitors are encouraged to bring their own headphones and listen on their personal smart devices, a limited number of other listening options will be available at the front desk.
The physical aspect of the exhibit will be up for one week (9/3-9/10) and will be available through a SoundCloud live stream playlist following the exhibit.
This exhibit is part of the Breaking Barriers: Women's Lives & Livelihoods exhibit series and is sponsored in part by Chloe Capital. Processing of the Oral Histories of Tompkins County and creation of the Women's Voices in Tompkins County Oral History Collection was made possible through a two year grant from the Institute of Museum & Library Services and the Museum Association of New York.
