About this event

How do you tell someone’s story? What is it like to hear your story told by another? How do you turn a long recorded interview into a short, compelling audio piece? We will discuss those questions and more as we hear stories from our community created by students in Cornell’s Milstein Program in Technology & Humanity. 

The students crafted these pieces as part of a class taught by Milstein Program Director Austin Bunn, a filmmaker, writer, and theater artist. Lesley Greene and Jonathan Miller, co-directors of Story House Ithaca, helped connect the students to community groups and advised them as they prepared and crafted their stories. 

The students interviewed English language learners from Open Doors English, participants in Civic Ensemble’s ReEntry Theater, and members of Lifelong Senior Center. We will hear a sampling of these audio stories, with time for discussion of each. Austin, Lesley, Jonathan, Milstein students, members of the three community groups, and you, the audience, will take part!

"Mixing it Up" is part of the Community Arts Partnership's Spring Writes Literary Festival.  Visit SpringWrites.org for all Spring Writes events, artist bios, and registration information.
