Marion Voices


Marion Voices is a new county-wide oral history and folklife/folk arts project from the Marion County Historical Society, to capture everyday stories from our recent past and to document expressive cultural traditions that constitute Marion’s cultural heritages. In 2019-2020, we will focus on documenting folklife/traditional/cultural arts from multiple underserved Marion County communities; and we will focus on gathering oral histories from Marion’s Black communities,focused on Black life/culture/experience in Marion County, 1960s-now.

Marion Voices is funded in part through generous grant support from Ohio Arts Council and Ohio Humanities.

** Please note that these grants, however generous, do not meet our full program costs. We need your help in fundraising to meet our grant match requirements; please donate if you are able!!! **
