Now You Can Tell Your Story

Are you interested in sharing your personal experiences and stories related to the regional history? If so, we invite you to visit the Storytelling Booth in our Common Ground exhibit.

This unique installation aims to collect and showcase diverse stories from our community that may have never been told before. All you need to do is answer a few question prompts and record your story. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the rich tapestry of our regional history!

Big Stories of the Year

In the Common Ground exhibit we value your opinions and invite you to share them with us. As part of our exhibit, we have chronicled the history of the Quad Cities over the past five years.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the most important stories that have shaped our community during the last year. Your input will help us create a more comprehensive and accurate representation of our shared history. So please, come visit our exhibit and let your voice be heard.
