DISplace Call for Stories (Talk Story)

Call for Stories (Talk Story)

Five Oaks Museum is accepting submissions for DISplace

Five Oaks Museum’s upcoming exhibition, DISplace, will shine light on the widely unknown connection between Hawaiʻi, the Pacific Northwest, and the communities that continue to flow between these two regions. DISplace opens November 12, 2020 at the museum and on our digital platforms.

We invite submissions from families and individuals who would like to share the story of their life in this region. How did your family find their way here? What do you do to remain connected to home while living elsewhere? What is home to you?

This could take the form of a written account, recorded conversation, or photographs. This can also be a more abstract representation of your connection to Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest — a song, a piece of clothing, a family heirloom, or even a favorite food item your family enjoys! Given the many different communities that have moved between the Islands and the PNW, we want to leave this as open-ended as possible. We welcome your stories in any form you feel is the best representation, and can’t wait to hear from you!
