The Friends of the Modesto Library and Modesto Sound invite the public to attend a free event celebrating the completion of the first season of The California Audio Roots Project, a series of sound recordings depicting life in the Central Valley. Guests will meet the participants and hear some of their stories.
This event will take place in the Modesto Librray Auditorium.
Local non-profit Modesto Sound created the California Audio Roots Project (CARP), which invited residents to record stories, poems, or songs about their life and living in California. Modesto Sound is converting the recordings to podcasts for broadcast on local radio stations. CARP’s goals are to use creativity and teamwork to boost cross-cultural understanding and build feelings of being heard and understood through story and art sharing.
The project was made possible through support from the National Endowment for the Arts and several local foundations. The Friends of the Modesto Library is the host organization for the premier event.
