What’s your story?

Organized by the New Bedford Whaling Museum, Common Ground: Community Stories is an ambitious oral history project and exhibition to create a full picture of the Greater New Bedford region and residents through story collection. A key goal is to give voice to community members. By gathering individual stories, Common Ground presents a diverse, inclusive, and celebratory accounting of the lived experiences of South Coast residents.

Common Ground was supported by grants from the William M. Wood Foundation and the Massachusetts Humanities Foundation, and organized by the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
