On this episode of Museum Chat Live!, your co-hosts Abbey and Sara consider the role of oral history in collecting community stories, and building community legacy.
We discuss the Museum’s oral history collection project, STC StoryLab, and sit down with Reverend Dr. Paul Miller, pastor of Westminster United Church located on Queenston Street in St. Catharines, and a leader in the Queenston Neighbourhood. Through Paul’s facilitation, the Museum conducted several life-story interviews with Queenston-area residents in 2021. We invited Paul onto the podcast to chat about why it was important for Queenston community members to share their stories through STC StoryLab, and while oral history projects matter.
Take a listen and share your thoughts with us!
