Unfamiliar Stories Project Coordinator (Temporary)
What is the Unfamiliar Stories Project?
Storytelling is something we can find across all cultures. It is in our nature as humans to want to listen to, learn
from, and share stories. Sometimes those stories are our own and sometimes they are stories we have simply
heard. We are a group of history folks that are working together to create a model for communities to follow
so that everyone has a method to collect, preserve, and share their own unique stories. We are focusing two
communities (Hmong and Somali) where unfamiliar stories are being shared and kept. We will be gathering
information from community members and organizations through focus groups and surveys. We know that
incredible cultural resources and stories are integral parts of these “unfamiliar” communities, and our goal is
to connect with those community members in order to preserve and share that knowledge.
We are looking for two (2) responsible Project Coordinators who will facilitate meetings with Hmong and
Somali communities and organize project activities in cooperation with and under the direction of the
Unfamiliar Stories Action Team and its Chair, Mai Vang.
