Oral history Day 1


It is another meaningful day at our compound where we are having the “Oral history techniques course” which will build the capacity of researchers who are soon going to engaged in the actual research.

Explaining the basic objective, the course stated that women who used to work on traditional artifacts are off from the visible space & their stories are also missing even might get lost unless we engage on it with appropriate techniques now.

The technique then is believed to “humanize” the research participants as they should be than using other methods which might make them numbers and miss the deep stories only can come through the oral narration centers them as pillar.

The training is also hoped to go beyond this project and became a means of preserving the historically significant aspects of the nation owing it to the fact that most of the knowladge production is set in the orality of the community.


The Hargeysa Cultural Center was opened in August 2014 in Hargeysa, Somaliland. The Center was established by Redsea Cultural Foundation (RCF). Since its establishment, the Hargeysa Cultural Center has become an important feature in Hargeysa’s cultural landscape. The success of the center owes much to the respect that RCF has gained from its work on running the annual Hargeysa International Book Fair, which, now in its eighth year, has become one of the most admired cultural events in the region.
