34th Avenue Oral History Launch
Join us for a free community event featuring storytelling and dance performances by participants in the 34th Avenue Oral History project.
Documenting the story of what is becoming one of New York City’s most important streets, the 34th Avenue Open Street Oral History Project incorporates storytelling, dialogue, photography, audio, and written word to create portraits of people who are reshaping their lives around the 34th Avenue Open Street in Jackson Heights, Queens.
Oral historian and Jackson Heights resident Bridget Bartolini is conducting interviews with people whose lives have been impacted by the Open Street, and creating profiles. The full interviews will be archived with Queens Memory.
This project is supported by a Public Humanities Grant from Humanities New York and The Laundromat Project’s Creative Action Fund
