        Your Voice Matters

        StoryCorps is recording 18 conversations at the Getty Center on March 26, 27, and 28 on the theme of play. This {awesome} oral history project provides people of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. 

        If you’re in L.A. on these days and have a friend or family member who wants to do it too, you can apply to participate. It’s free, and your recording will go into the Library of Congress.

        Because we only have 18 time slots, not everyone can participate…but we want to hear from you if you do!

        Participate in StoryCorps at the Getty
