Common Ground - New Bedford Whaling Museum
Common Ground Mosaic Story Hour

Common Ground

Here's the Story: Common Ground Story Hour with Akeia de Barros Gomes, PhD

Thursday, May 27, 6:00-7:00pm

New Bedford is an extraordinary place of infinite possibilities where different paths from around the world have intersected and defined the city’s character. The Museum is collecting and sharing the stories of the Greater New Bedford community – in your own words. The initiative will culminate in an exhibition that shares the lived experiences of our enduring and dynamic communities.

With the Common Ground project underway, join the museum’s Curator of Social History, Akeia de Barros Gomes, Ph.D., for an evening to hear and experience stories from Greater New Bedford locals! Hear about family traditions, various cultures, and heart-warming Greater New Bedford moments and memories. Photographs and tellings will be shared by individuals with ties to the area as they generously lend their voices through writings, audio recordings, and video submissions.

Limited spots available for new storytellers to share their photographs or stories during the program.  Contact Akeia de Barros Gomes at agomes@whalingmuseum.org if you would like to sign-up to share your story.

Free via Zoom. Registration required.
