Event description
Join us for an Oral History methods training workshop by AEMP on how to document personal histories to build power through storytelling.

About this Event

In collaboration with the Los Angeles Poverty Department and hosted at their space, the Skid Row History Museum & Archive, the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project will be conducting a workshop on oral history methods we use when collecting stories. Part of our project at AEMP is to create a counter-narrative by and for folks who are experiencing and resisting displacement and gentrification. The aim is to provide a whole story of displacement in Los Angeles, but most importantly to encapsulate what living and fighting to stay here feels like. Come help us develop that story, and learn how you can use these tools in your own work. AEMP members will provide training on how to document personal histories to help build power, and the group will listen to oral histories together.

For examples of our work and methods, check out our Narratives of Displacement and Resistance project and our collaboration with the Los Angeles Tenants Union, the Tenants in Common project.

PS - Stay tuned for an upcoming story booth where we can practice the skills we learn in this training together. Date/time/location to be announced.

About AEMP

The Anti-Eviction Mapping Project is a data-visualization, data analysis, and storytelling collective documenting the dispossession and resistance upon gentrifying landscapes. Primarily working in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York City, we are all volunteers producing digital maps, oral history work, film, murals, and community events. Working with a number of community partners and in solidarity with numerous housing movements, we study and visualize new entanglements of global capital, real estate, technocapitalism, and political economy. Our narrative oral history and video work centers the displacement of people and complex social worlds, but also modes of resistance. Maintaining antiracist and feminist analyses as well as decolonial methodology, the project creates tools and disseminates data contributing to collective resistance and movement building.
