Jukebox is a storytelling project located at the Cambridge Foundry. Combined with community-centered programming, it will:

  • Create a centerpoint within the Cambridge community for listening to and connecting with one another through the sharing of our stories
  • Build a platform that amplifies community voices, especially the voices of underrepresented community groups, including BIPOC individuals
  • Develop an authentic archive of stories that represents the diverse lived experiences, backgrounds and perspectives of Cambridge community members

Jukebox was created by socially-engaged multimedia artist Elisa H. Hamilton in partnership with The Loop Lab and Cambridge Arts.
