Mass Memories Road Show

April 27 @ 10:00 am 3:00 pm

As a member of the Malden community (past or present), YOU are invited to be part of the Malden Mass. Memories Road Show coming to Malden on April 27, 2024 at the Malden Senior / Teen Community Center.
Malden Reads is leading the local planning team in collaboration with the UMass Boston Healey Library and partnering with the City of Malden, Urban Media Arts and the Malden Public Library, to bring this road show to Malden!


The Mass. Memories Road Show is a public history project that digitizes and archives personal photographs and stories shared by the people of Massachusetts. 

This event-based, participatory program is coordinated through the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston in collaboration with local planning groups in communities throughout the Commonwealth.

Since its launch in 2004, the Mass. Memories Road Show has digitized more than 12,000 photographs and stories from across the state, creating an educational resource of primary sources for future generations. You can view that archive here.


Help spread the word! Bring your family, friends, neighbors, community groups, constituents, clients and customers. The more people who participate, the more accurate is the “snapshot” recorded of our community’s history. 

Decide on three photographs that have special meaning to you. Bring them to the event on April 27, 2024. They can be hard copy or digital. 

At the event, you will have the opportunity to share the story behind the photo and have your memories recorded for Malden’s historical archive.

There will be other things to see and do at this community event. Malden Reads and Urban Media Arts are planning special activities that celebrate the stories of our community. The event will also celebrate the 375th anniversary of the city of Malden through fun activities, presentations and exhibits.

Whether you are a newcomer to the city or have lived here all your life, YOUR story is important to our community’s evolving history.


If you represent a community organization, please help spread the word!

You can also sign up to volunteer for the event by emailing Malden Reads committee member Karen Phillips at karenjphillips1@gmail.com.
