Worcester Historical Museum (Worcester, MA 01609-2570)
William Wallace (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
Securing Worcester's History: Making History Together

Retention of five positions and creation of one that would contribute to capturing oral histories of communities in Worchester and documentation of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic locally, as well as planning for the development and movement of school curricula and planned exhibitions into digital formats.

Funding to provide emergency relief will enable Worcester Historical Museum to retain and hire humanities staff to address these three goals: 1) build, secure, document and archive the digital collection, 2) continue parallel efforts to continue oral history projects, and 3) create online experiences for existing programs and postponed/canceled/abbreviated events. In accordance with current city, state and national requirements/guidelines, museum spaces will be regularly sanitized so that when physical distancing ends, the museum will be positioned to welcome visitors safely.
