Turn On, Tune In – A Digital Story Telling Workshop
New Mexico History Museum
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
(at various listed locations)

Inspired by the iconic 1966 Timothy Leary counterculture motto: Turn on, tune in, drop out, the New Mexico History Museum and Palace of the Governors is sponsoring a series of unique storytelling workshops in concert with the museum’s Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest exhibition (open through February 11, 2018). To further glean the impact of this era, ten residents from each of the five New Mexico communities listed below will be selected to participate in a workshop to craft and present personal stories for their community.

The program is designed to be in collaboration with local libraries, museums, universities, community groups, and radio broadcasters. Workshops will start with a Friday evening presentation followed by a two-day session on Saturday and Sunday. The outgrowth will be community events featuring the stories, local music, a potluck, either a live or produced radio broadcast and will have an on-line presence.

Documenting Pueblo Designs in the 1930s

This Free First Sunday program is offered in collaboration with the Tom Lea Institute (El Paso, TX) during its annual Tom Lea Month.

H.P. Mera complemented the illustrations with short descriptions of the 10 Pueblos, with a significant focus on Zuni’s "Rainbird Design" and its influence in nearby Pueblos.
