When our 8-min episode of Gems of Itasca featuring the Picture Grace (The Bovey Edition) was nominated in October for a regional Emmy® award, this told us a couple of things beyond the quality of our work - that being nominated alongside storytelling veterans like PBS in particular, affirmed the value of our Itasca community's stories and how important it is to continue the preservation of our local history through story-telling and film. .
Oral histories are a vital foundation to our individual identities - a testament to something that happened or is unfolding presently that reflects and also shapes and solidifies our identities. It’s an extremely powerful method of storytelling and is a way of collecting, preserving, and transferring knowledge, values, and identity of our culture to our future generations.
Join us as we prepare to preserve the narrative and legacy of one of our treasured community stories & heirlooms through the Grace Oral History Project.
It's only 1 day 'til GIVE TO THE MAX DAY (Minnesota's giving holiday) so if you're looking for a great community cause to give to, kindly consider this project.
