Listen to the Whales is an installation of vintage interactive listening devices that asks participants to imagine a scenario where instead of seeking to dominate the oceans with warships and military might we used these resources for learning and understanding. Chambers uses a bit of fantasy and theater to create a space where this contemplation can happen. The Roaring Forties, formed in 1988, perform traditional folk songs and relish the enjoyment they get from singing harmonies and encouraging audience participation.
New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park was established by Congress in 1996 to help preserve and interpret America’s nineteenth century whaling industry. The park, which encompasses a 13-block National Historic Landmark District, is the only National Park Service area addressing the history of the whaling industry and its influence on the economic, social, and environmental history of the United States. The visitor center is wheelchair-accessible, and is free of charge. For more information, call the visitor center at 508-996-4095, go to www.nps.gov/nebe or visit the park’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NewBedfordNPS. Everyone finds their park in a different way. Discover yours at FindYourPark.com
