Is there one California story—or are there many? Community Stories (formerly the California Story Fund) gives expression to the extraordinary variety of histories and experiences of California’s places and people. We hope these stories will help us all find our commonalities, appreciate our differences, and learn something new about how to live well together. Click HERE to see a list of past and present Community Stories projects.
In 2013 and 2014, in conjunction with our War Comes Home initiative, Community Stories focuses on veteran-related community-based storytelling projects.
Since 2003, California Humanities has supported approximately 400 story projects that have enabled communities to voice, record, and share histories—many previously untold or little known. Through video, photography, murals, zines, documentary theater, audio projects, and more, collected stories have been shared with broad audiences, both live and virtual. See how you can take part and contribute to this ongoing portrait of life in our state. There are two yearly rounds of open applications for Community Stories.
What’s your story, California?
