Center for World Culture Plans Oral-History Interviews at Reunion;
Volunteers Welcome to Sign Up Now
The Archives team of the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture in Dhahran is seeking volunteers to participate in filmed oral-history interviews at the Annuitants Reunion in Monterey on Oct. 24-26.
Debbie Edwards, one of the Center’s archivists, will be conducting the interviews with her colleague Farah Alsharif and videographer David Lugo from Aramco Services Company.
She expects the interviews, which will focus on the highlights of your careers with Saudi Aramco and your experiences in the Kingdom, to last 30 to 60 minutes. The team is looking not only for reflections on your life and work with the company, but also colorful and humorous anecdotes to help make those stories and accounts livelier, along with details of how you overcame daily work and general life challenges.
If you would like to be part of the oral-history project and can spare one hour from your reunion schedule, please download the attached form. Once filled in, send it to Farah Alsharif at [email protected].
Your one-and-a-half-page biography form will provide the team with background information and assist interviewees, to gather their thoughts and reflections in advance of the interview. Please supply two-time slots that you expect to be available for an interview at the end of the form and return it to the same e-mail address, [email protected]. Interviews will be carried out on an hourly basis, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily, Oct. 24-26.
The team looks forward to meeting you in Monterey.
