Oral history interviews were conducted between October 2012 and July 2013 with artists and residents of the Cork Factory warehouse in Baltimore, Maryland’s Station North Arts and Entertainment District.

Interviews cover a range of topics, including history of the Cork Factory building, development of the state’s first arts and entertainment district, the process of redevelopment and neighborhood change, as well as personal histories from artists and activists involved with the project.

This site includes portraits of interviewees and interview excerpts in both streaming audio and text. To date, the interviews have focused on the Cork Factory warehouse within the Station North district. The scope of the project may expand moving forward.

The complete oral history collection is maintained in the University of Baltimore’s Special Collections and Archives.
