For the first time in the Oral History Master’s Program at Columbia’s twelve year history, students will present a fully digital curation of their fieldwork.
GATHER is an immersive, interactive oral history exhibit designed to explore, challenge, ignite, and connect.
On May 1 from 5:00-8:00pm EST, OHMA will host a digital-launch event during which you’ll be able to interact in real-time with the students who’ve curated this work. After the event, the exhibit will remain open for you to explore at your convenience, with channels to respond and ask questions.
You may choose to take a tour of a small town gay bar, travel back to 1965 through the exploration of a young boy’s closet, or deepen your understanding of the Kink and BDSM communities through unique QTBIPOC stories.
