Collecting stories one by one
The Northwest Arkansas Oral History Project (NWAOHP) records and archives oral histories of individuals with Arkansas stories to tell. The target area for the organization is Benton, Washington, Madison and Carroll counties. NWAOHP collaborates with local museums, historical organizations and other entities to identify persons (Narrators) to interview. The stories are recorded by trained volunteers and archived at the University of Arkansas through a partnership with the Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History.
NWAOHP is a volunteer 501(c) 3 organization coordinated by Connie Fetters and Camille Hatcher. A grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council provided support for processing and publication of this project on the Pryor Center website. The Project promotes inter-generational participation and strives to have a Narrator group that is culturally and ethnically diverse.
