By: Embudo LibraryPosted: July 18, 2016

Turn on, Tune in is a 2017 New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors exhibit on Counter Culture.  2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the iconic Summer of Love, and the New Mexico History Museum is mounting an exhibit on the history of the Counter Culture in New Mexico.  

As part of the exhibit, the museum is partnering with www.StoryCenter.org to gather stories of past and current generations to be screened in the exhibit galleries.  The Embudo Valley Library is a community partner for this exhibition.  Yours may be one of the uniquely New Mexican stories to be featured.  

You may be a good candidate to share your story with the project if                                                                                        

  • You lived in New Mexico between 1960 and 1975 AND
  • You connect with the social activism, anti-war protests or alternative living of the 1960s and 1970s
  • OR you are under 35 and connect with these themes
  • OR you identify in some way with the term counter culture.

If you are selected as one of ten people in New Mexico (two from our area), you can attend a FREE 3-day workshop from October 14 - 16, 2016 in Santa Fe.   Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unique workshop — to tell your own story, learn about digital storytelling and to listen to others.  If you are interested you MUST APPLY BY AUGUST 31, 2016.
