What’s cool to do from to

Capital Cool


Celebrating individual voices, this “Living History” recording booth will collect stories from the people of Montgomery.

We'll hear from those who have lived and loved, faced hardship and sorrow, built families and community in this special place.

Located on the ground floor of Kress on Dexter, people will be invited to enter a phone booth, pick up the phone, and tell a story. The booth will be easy to access, use, and understand. Each story will be of equal importance and filed away into a free public archive easily accessed by anyone online. It is our hope that this platform will provide inclusive, equitable opportunity for sharing, listening, and storytelling.  

Through the use of innovative data technology tools, a collective narrative picture will emerge offering a deeper understanding of our collective selves — of  memory, of “place,” and of the love, pain and hope that binds people together.

This "Living HIstory" recording booth will run from April 12 through June 16.

Thu., Apr. 12, 2018, 8:00AM – 5:00PM
