Recollecting Adams

Episode 01: From Poland to Slovakia to Adams from Recollecting Adams on Vimeo.

The people of Adams, Massachusetts are gifted storytellers. They weave their personal family stories into the history of the town. As a result, their tales paint a rich portrait of the history of immigration, the mills, the Church, town life, and more, across generations.

Recollecting Adams tells the story of this small town in the Northern Berkshires. Told through first-person accounts, Recollecting Adams was a year-long project with new episodes launching every three weeks.

Recollecting Adams is also part of the larger project Networked Realities: (Re)Connecting the Adamses a collaboration of Turbulence and Greylock Arts and MCLA Gallery51.

Recollecting Adams is a 2008 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support was provided by Frank and Barbara Peters through the Medici Circle award at the University of California at Irvine.
