As part of Quilt Fest 2023 Stitched Stories: Quilts that Speak, this pilot project is the first phase of a broad based multi-year oral storytelling project that collects and organizes audio stories and related photographs about the Clifton-Fine area. Community members, year round or seasonal, young and old, are encouraged to share stories about the area, and what makes it special to them. The program promotes the rich social and cultural history of the area, strengthens a sense of shared community among area residents, and connects the next generation to the place they call home.
Preserve and circulate local audio stories and photos, past and present, in an easily accessible online format,
Promote a sense of place by documenting what is special about the area,
Strengthen area communities through the sharing of their stories, and
Encourage younger generations to become engaged community members.
