Graduate students with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s public history program are interested in YOUR STORY.
Join them on Oct. 1 at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective where students will photograph items for inclusion in an anthropological inventory representing Acadiana’s people, culture and history.
History professor Thomas Cauvin said objects – be they musical, mechanical or otherwise – can tell a story. The goal of the harvest was to get people to bring in objects and share their histories with the students, who recorded the oral histories and photographed and scanned the documents and various items that were brought in.
Students will be documenting at NUNU Arts and Culture Collective from 11 am – 4 pm.
