The Community input meeting is an academic exercise hosted by Roger Williams University and WHALE for the potential creative non-theater reuse of the Orpheum Theater!

The Roger Williams University Architecture, Historic Preservation, Art and Planning Department is teaching three courses that focus on the implementation of an architectural and real estate reuse feasibility study for the historic Orpheum Theater in the intersection of downtown New Bedford and the South End neighborhood of the city. The Waterfront Historic Area League (WHALE) is teaching an interdisciplinary feasibility workshop in tandem with DesignLab’s architecture studio and Heritage Restoration Conservation Lab. The students, professors and University are looking for community input and thank you for consideration of attending!

All are welcome to come share their ideas and community needs!
