There are two options if you are interested in recording a story for the Disability Visibility Project:
- You can record a story using the new StoryCorps app (anytime, anywhere from your smartphone)
- You can go to a StoryCorps recording booth in person and record your story
If you cannot or do not want to record your oral history with StoryCorps, you are welcome to submit a guest blog post. Go to our Contact page for more information.

StoryCorps: In person (Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Mobile Tour)
Anyone who records at StoryCorps can have their recording included in the Disability Visibility Project. The easiest way to schedule your StoryCorps appointment is online. Click here to make an appointment. You can also make an appointment by phone at 800-850-4406.
Be sure to mention the Disability Visibility Project in the Notes section of your online reservation form when making your appointment. Also, please include any accommodations or accessibility needs you might have in the Notes section (e.g., two wheelchair users, bringing an ASL interpreter, using a communication device).
Please note Mobile Tour: the mobile trailer can only fit 1 wheelchair user and one non-wheelchair user.
There are no rules on what to talk about during your recording session as long as it’s centered on the lived experience of disability. For more: http://disabilityvisibilityproject.com/2014/08/11/participant-faq-what-kinds-of-stories-are-you-looking-to-record/
