Working with the Albanian Festival Committee and the Worcester Historical Museum, the project documented the lives of Albanian immigrant families in Worcester during the first half of the 20th century. The team conducted 40 interviews with individuals who grew up in the Albanian Beacon Street neighborhood of the city, and collected photographs and archival materials to develop a digital exhibition focusing on family life, work, childhood experiences, leisure, cultural change, and institutions. Our project serves as the starting point for a more comprehensive exhibition the museum is planning and was intended to catalyze interest in the Albanian community.
