  • Grant Summary:

    Waterbury: City of Transition (working title) takes the heart of Waterbury’s history and makes it relevant and personal for a local or out of town audience. This project will allow the history gallery to be more welcoming and engaging for all visitors, regardless of economic, social, or cultural background, and regardless of where they live. By fully embracing participatory culture and the active, social ways that people today engage with history, art, and ideas, the Museum has the potential to be a catalyst for social change. The exhibition will invite visitors to look at Waterbury’s history through a lens of transition to answer the question “Who am I now?” In this way, the exhibition will guide visitors through an experience where the Waterbury region serves as an example through which they can consider their personal history.
