Oral History Exhibitions

Oral History exhibitions

Five exhibitions installed at the Webster Library explore the ways that stories can teach us about the past and present. These exhibitions, described below, coincided with the Oral History Association’s annual conference, hosted by the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling.

Creative Engagements with Personal Story at COHDS (Curated by Lauren Laframboise, images by David Ward) explores the different research-creation projects undertaken at the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling.

Walk in the Water/Marcher sur les eaux (Kathleen Vaughan, Concordia University Research Chair in Socially Engaged Art and Public Pedagogies and COHDS co-director) invites visitors to learn about the history of the St. Lawrence river’s Pointe-Saint-Charles shoreline by engaging with a touch-sensitive textile sound map.

Oral History, New Media and Our Changing Climate – The Shore Line (Elizabeth Miller) is a pop-up gallery of slow resistance stories featuring individuals who are confronting the threats of unsustainable development, storms and rising seas with both persistence and imagination.

Walking With (Pohanna Pyne Feinberg) is a sound-art installation in the library’s entrance stairway that explores the potential of walking as a form of artistic inquiry and expression.

Storytellers-Illustrer les mémoires de l’éducation autochtone: une case à la fois (Emanuelle Dufour, PhD student in Art Education) is a graphic art project on indigenous education, historical awareness and cultural safety.
