Community members are encouraged to bring in any photographs, documents, or objects related to their own stories of immigration or enduring cultural heritage traditions. Such items will help inform and may be used in the Center’s upcoming exhibits on immigration and cultural heritage in New Bedford’s working waterfront. Fishing Heritage Center staff and volunteers will scan the materials and record any information the owner shares about each piece. The owner will leave with their originals along with a digital copy of the scans on a flash drive.

If you cannot attend “Stories of Immigration Scanning Day” but would like to have your collection scanned, please call (508) 993-8894 to make an appointment.

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