The Athens Heritage Project
2007-2008 ICE Project Grant
The Athens Heritage Project will share the uniquely varied history of Athens and its neighboring communities through a series of oral history-based theatrical productions. Professor Paul Sutter will work in collaboration with the Rose of Athens Theatre to conduct interviews with Athens residents representing many communities: African-American, Faith, Immigrant, Music, Old Town Athens, the University of Georgia and more. Their stories will be crafted into dramatic compositions using text, music, media and movement, creating an enduring living history for the city and its region.
