The History Museum is looking for community involvement with the creation of an exhibition that celebrates the Latino community in Hood River County. The Museum is hosting a public forum to begin the discussion on June 27. During the forum, representatives from The History Museum will discuss with members of the Hood River County community about what they would like to see included in the exhibition. We want to put the voice of the Hood River County Latino community at the forefront of this process.
Additionally, The Museum is looking for volunteers who are willing to commit to collect oral and video histories from members in the Hood River County Latino Community, conduct historical research, complete transcription of interviews, and aid with the design, layout, and installation of the exhibition.
Volunteers would begin training for the collection of oral histories in late August and begin collecting them in early September with a finishing date of early December.
