Wyoming Stories Community Recordings - Riverton

Oct 15, 2013

Wyoming Public Media will be recording Riverton's Wyoming Stories on Thur. Oct. 24 and Fri. Oct. 25 at the Intertribal Education and Community Center at Central Wyoming College in Riverton.

Nothing captures the flavor of Wyoming like a well-told story!  Wyoming Stories was created to capture the history of Wyoming, through the memories of those who live here, often through generations.

In May of 2013, members of The Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund board announced that Wyoming Public Media’s new oral histories project had been awarded a $25,000 grant to build its Wyoming Stories program. The program will kick off in July with StoryCorps' MobileBooth’s stop in Wyoming as its launching point. 

The Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund has announced two new deadlines for grants to nonprofit and governmental organizations in Wyoming, the earlier of which is April 1st.

Fund Administrator Renee Bobee says the fund supports groups that enrich the state by providing essential cultural opportunities for residents in a variety of ways, including fairs and exhibitions, archaeological research, musical performances and historical preservation projects. Bobee says the grant can also help organizations to grow and develop.
