Germantown is full of stories; and the Germantown Info Hub wants to help you share those stories.
The Info Hub and G’town Radio launched the Germantown Voices Project. The project, funded by the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, will produce more than 40 first-person narratives by and of Germantown neighbors.
Here is how it works! Nominate a storyteller to interview, or nominate yourself to tell a story about:
- Growing up or living in Germantown.
- How Covid-19 has affected your life.
- Memories of Germantown.
If you live in Germantown and want to interview a neighbor, family member or friend we can record you for the project. You and the person you interview may be eligible to receive a $100 gift certificate. Click here to book a recording session at our Virtual Storytelling Booth.
