Windcrest Stories are Online

Tuesday, March 10th, 2009

Just wanted to let everyone know that the senior citizen stories from Windcrest (a retirement community in South Denver) are up here.  These stories are a great way to think about doing oral histories with the senior population.  We worked one-on-one with residents at Windcrest to put together these stories and document experiences they’ve had that they wanted to share.

This workshop was funded by Retirement Living TV and was the second workshop in a series of workshops of this kind. The first workshop was led by students from UMBC (Univ of Maryland Baltimore County) in a service learning initiative where new media students went into a local retirement community to work with seniors.  Those stories won a Telly Award and can be found here.
