Program: The Sounds of History

It’s not just words and pictures that help preserve history. Sounds can add incredible depth to that storytelling, and the nonprofit Jack Straw Cultural Center has been doing just that in the Seattle area since 1962. The 2014 winner of AKCHO’s technology award will host our November membership meeting, with Executive Director Joan Rabinowitz sharing its use of radio, podcasts and audio guides to record the histories of local artists, community groups and heritage societies. Recording the 50th anniversary of the 1962 World’s Fair, digitizing a 1970 KRAB radio series on Seattle’s history, and producing an oral history of Lake Union and Portage Bay are a few of the group’s contributions over five decades.

An exhibit titled “Extraordinary Ordinary People: American Masters of Traditional Arts” will be on display as well for members to visit.

Driving Directions:

Located in Seattle’s University District, the center is at the southwest corner of NE 43rd and Roosevelt Way. No free parking but plenty of pay lots and some street parking.
