More than 200 people visited a vintage Airstream trailer that transformed into a gathering place to record and archive meaningful conversations at Cadence Park in Irvine.

FivePoint and StoryCorps hosted the pop-up “Stories from the OC” experience between August and December 2019 to honor storytellers, facilitate conversations and create connections that strengthen the fabric of a very diverse Orange County community. Each recorded conversation is now part of the StoryCorps Archive at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.
