Oral History Project

Share your story



As part of Irish Arts Center’s 50th anniversary, we are launching an oral history project to capture stories from across the life of the organization. Beginning with chronicles from the 1970s and moving through the decades, we intend to honor, in a small way, the hard work and passion so many people have poured into IAC over the past half century.

Anyone with memories to share is welcome and encouraged to sign up for an interview, and we hope you will spread this invitation far and wide.

If you have trouble accessing our intake form, please contact for assistance.
