Community Story Workshops

January 30, 2020 | 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

What is your story? What is the story of your favorite place? Are there community stories you’d like to share or bring to life? Do you have project ideas around gathering community stories?

These workshops are a part of the Otter Tail County Story Mapping Project, a 10 month pilot project by Rethos in partnership with the Otter Tail County Historical Society and Springboard for the Arts. The purpose of this project is to collect and map the stories of Otter Tail County by engaging community members through small projects led by local community members, like you! During the Community Story Workshops, you’ll learn:

What is a story map?

Methods of gathering stories from your community
About project ideas from one-on-one conversations to more creative and public projects
How to apply for funds, ranging from $500 to $2,500, to implement your community story project

Who should attend?

Anyone who is interested in leading a community project to gather stories!
Teachers and students
Historical society members and volunteers
Business and property owners
Economic development professionals
Chambers of Commerce staff and volunteers
City officials
Community residents

If you can’t make it to one of the three workshops, we are offering an online webinar on Monday, Feb. 3, 2020 at 4 – 5:30 pm. Co
