Do you have a funny story about work? Have you learned something insightful at work? Have you had a lot of jobs or just a few? Do you have an unusual job that you’d like to tell us about? We want to hear your story! You can sign up here to go to Hyrum City Museum in Hyrum and tell us your story on Saturday, April 22 or Saturday, May 6.
Everybody has a story to tell and we want to hear yours! Utah Works is a new series of short stories about the way we work in Utah, told in participants’ own words, for airing this spring on Utah Public Radio. We’d love for you to tell your story as a part of this series.
Utah Works is based on The Way We Worked, which is a traveling exhibition, created by the Smithsonian Institution and the National Archives, that explores how work became such a central element in American culture. The Way We Worked is touring to six Utah communities during 2017. As part of the exhibition tour, Utah Humanities and Utah Public Radio are partnering with Ogden Union Station and Hyrum City Museum to interview local residents about their work.
Utah Works is a collaboration between UPR, Utah Humanities, Ogden Union Station, and Hyrum City Museum, and is based on The Way We Worked exhibition. The Way We Worked has been made possible in Utah by Utah Humanities. The exhibition, created by the National Archives, is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
