Introduction

The Vox Van project transformed an old utility van into a mobile story-gathering unit as part of marking the founding of Anchorage in 1915. In the summer of 2014, the van parked at a variety of locations and events and engaged community members. Voices of Anchorage were video recorded, leading to a contemporary sense of people and place. Together they will illustrate the many stories, perspectives, histories and cultures of Anchorage residents. The compilation of videos was presented at the Anchorage Museum and on the Alaska Public Media website in 2015. Vox Van is a collaboration between the Anchorage Museum and Alaska Public Media.
