About Stories From Hell's Kitchen

'Stories From Hell's Kitchen' is a UK/USA research collaboration. By working with academics, community organisations and residents in Hell's Kitchen, the project seeks to create the definitive oral history of people in this iconic New York neighborhood. Residents past and present will be invited to share their memories of life in Hell's Kitchen. An original suite of music written and performed by The Dacha Band will explore the rich texture of the neighborhood over the years. Further understanding of Hells Kitchen will be advanced through art, photography and poetry. 


The project is being led by Dr Angela Maye-Banbury,  senior lecturer in housing and neighborhoods at Sheffield Hallam University, England. Dr Maye-Banbury is leading a multidisciplinary team of researchers, musicians and others in creating this unique immersive oral history of Hell's Kitchen.
