So far, The Women of Rock Oral History Project has survived thanks to a series of small grants, and the unpaid labor of friends and colleagues who believe strongly in preserving women’s history. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to keep up with the backlog of interviewees due to travel, editing and transcribing expenses, the majority of which are out-of-pocket—I’m basically a touring historian; sleeping on floors, and subsisting on power bars!
I am reaching out because this project is important. I've set a goal of $30,000 in order to conduct and finalize ten additional interviews in 2016. This money will cover travel expenses, equipment, transcription costs and compensating friends and colleagues who so generously donate their time and skills to making this project sustainable (filming, editing, web and flyer design, photographers, promoters).
Please, give what you can. Thank you for your support.
