StoryCorps in Chicago
From 2013 to September 2021, StoryCorps operated a booth and exhibition space at the Chicago Cultural Center. More than 7,500 people from the Chicago area recorded more than 4,000 StoryCorps interviews or facilitated conversations. All StoryCorps conversations are archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. StoryCorps partnered with WBEZ to broadcast excerpts of interviews recorded in the region.
We are no longer accepting new appointments for our booth in Chicago, but it’s never been easier to record a StoryCorps interview with the important people in your life. Find out how to record your conversations remotely with Storycorps Connect.
If you have any additional questions about the work that we do or about partnering, you can always reach us through our Help Center.
