Tune into Facebook Live for an illustrated talk on Portuguese immigration and the Portuguese fishing experience featuring Gloria deSa, Peter Pereira, and Ron Fortier. Learn about fishing in Portugal as well as about the Portuguese community in New Bedford today.

This talk is a part of our series of programs related to our latest exhibit, “We Came to Fish, We Came to Work: Stories of Immigration.” This exhibits explores stories of immigration and cultural heritage on New Bedford’s working waterfront. Over the next 8 months, we will look at cultural heritage through a variety of programs including film screenings, cooking and craft demos, performances, and talks, which will be offered virtually until we are able to re-open the Center.

The Center’s 2020 exhibits and programs are funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Creative Commonwealth Initiative, and the Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and New Bedford Cultural Councils.
