Saturday August 26, 2017 - Sunday August 27, 2017 All Day
Women Making Change explores individuals and groups of women from Holyoke’s past who helped to shape the City in the 20th Century. Holyoke has a rich history of women workers, organizations, community leaders, businesswomen, educators, and more who contributed to economy, culture, and structure of the City.
This exhibit – on view at the City’s annual Celebrate Holyoke event as part of WistariaHERE – will provide a starting point for the exploration of women’s history in the City by using the Wistariahurst archival collection to scan a range of women who made impacts throughout Holyoke’s history.
Visitors will be encouraged to leave stories regarding their own memories of significant women from the Holyoke community and to listen to stories of contemporary Holyoke women produced by Radioplasma.
