Save the date! This summer, we are celebrating the Center’s five-year anniversary and the official grand opening of More than a Job with an event on June 26th! This event will feature industry skills demonstrations, live music, and kid’s activities. This celebration will be free and open to the public.

Funding for More than a Job: Work and Community in New Bedford’s Fishing Industry is provided by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and significant support from Bristol County Savings Bank. Major in-kind support for this exhibit was provided by Fairhaven Shipyard and Blue Fleet Welding.
