Residents are asked to tell their stories as part of a unique oral history project.
MARIETTA - Two Cobb County nonprofits are joining forces to produce a special project: 2 Years Later… An Auditory Time Capsule. The project is an oral history of Cobb County residents through first-person storytelling. Featuring stories of Cobb County residents and the way their lives have changed since March of 2020, participants are asked to call (770) 569-3305 and share their story in their own words. Each story will be available at CobbStories.com as an audio file, and each story will be transcribed for the hearing impaired.
The auditory catalogue will have a companion portraiture series captured by photographer Justin Hadley. The exhibit debuts Saturday, May 7th, 2022 at M2R TrailFest — an immersive celebration of the arts in Downtown Marietta, GA — as part of the M2R Fence Gallery, a countywide, yearlong traveling art exhibit. Each photo panel will contain a QR code linked to the story of the participant. The public can visit the project website to hear the stories as well as share their own.
