April 2015 – Armenian Oral History and Community Exhibition

The Norian Armenian Programs has undertaken an Oral History Project and Community Exhibition, aimed at providing a forum for individuals from the Armenian American community throughout Connecticut and the greater New England region to record, share, and preserve their stories, and in so doing, to contribute to the understanding of themes relating to immigration, cultural diversity, and identity relevant to the Armenian diaspora.

The exhibition will be in March-May 2015. Learn more about the exhibition and how you can contribute by visiting the exhibition page or the event page on Facebook!
