StoryCorps, the national nonprofit oral history organization, will launch a Chicago version this spring at the Chicago Cultural Center, 78 E. Washington.

In partnership with the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) and Chicago Public Media, StoryCorps Chicago will provide the opportunity for anyone to record an interview with a loved one.

According to a statement from DCASE, "StoryCorps Chicago will partner with a wide array of local organizations and institutions to ensure that every Chicagoan has the opportunity to share their story. Dynamic public events presented throughout the year will celebrate the diverse communities that constitute the richness of our city. StoryCorps Chicago will also have its own local series airing on WBEZ 91.5, featuring stories collected through the project."

An exhibition area will allow visitors to listen to StoryCorps stories, watch a selection of StoryCorps animated shorts, and learn more about how to participate in the interview process.

Recordings will take place 2 p.m. - 7 p.m. Thursdays and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m Saturdays. Reservations will open in the spring. Visit www.chicagoculturalcenter.org.
