New Orleans Ferry Oral History Project

Artist: Brigid Conroy
New Orleans, LA

The New Orleans Ferry Oral History Project is an artist’s book and oral history initiative. Employing ethnographic and archival practices, this visual arts project will investigate the role that the New Orleans Ferry has played in the public memory and social imagination of the city. The project will engage community members from both the East Bank and the West Bank, first through a series of story-gathering events at the ferry terminals, and later through the distribution of the artist’s book.

Award Amount: $4000
