The producers of Underground Airwaves, a podcast supported by Ecotrust, have created bilingual “interactive exhibits and pop-up story booths” in order to collect oral histories featuring Latino voices, with a special emphasis on farming and food. The exhibits were built at the Portland Mercado on 7238 SE Foster Road, and the Ecotrust building in downtown Portland. Now, the story booths have moved to the Woodburn Public Library, where they will stay until Nov. 8.
The "Inheritance Stories" exhibit at the Woodburn Public Library aims to collect oral histories from people in the Latino community, with an emphasis on food.
