Kansas City, MO - As the Kansas City Museum launches a new capital campaign Monday its curators are asking for more than financial support -- they want personal stories.

The new HUB project (Historical Urban Base) will collect personal and neighborhood stories about what makes Kansas City unique, said museum director Marie Tutera. 

"Our new mission is all about showcasing unfolding stories about of Kansas City's history and cultural heritage," Tutera said.

The stories will be in all kinds of formats, from oral histories, to video conversations to documentaries. 

Tutera says they hope to unveil the first stories over the next six months.
