Filipino American Oral History Project

Add your story to the Oral History project!

In conjunction with the exhibition Carlos Villa: Worlds in Collision, we are gathering and documenting the stories of Filipino Americans living in New Jersey, the tri-state area, and beyond. To access the oral histories click here.

Join us for Mabuhay Guro: Storytelling from the Filipinx American Community on April 21. Register today and sign up for a timeslot to share your own story.

The FAOHP is open to anyone; however, those under 18 who would like to participate need a parent or guardian present during recording. In the event a parent or guardian can’t be present, written consent is required.
