We had a very productive and interesting meeting on Monday with the Eastside Community Heritage Executive Director Judith Garfield, filmmakers Athena Mandis and Garo Berberian, researcher and the project Maria Graham and the CAIA team, including the CEO Misak Ohanian, treasurer Diane John, administrator Christine James and the project coordinator Tatevik Ayvazyan. Lots of ideas were exchanged and lots of chocolate was eaten – but as a result the agreements  and plans for audio and video recordings were polished and we will have the first family stories documented very soon!

Stay tuned for more news and check out the current training sessions – you can be a part of the project, conduct interviews or share your family memories too.
