Trailer: We Had A Ball from Artspace New Haven on Vimeo.

Ask anyone about their connection to sports, and a cavalcade of stories is unleashed about a the amazing play, the inspiring coach, the team, the spirit, the narrow loss, and what happened to the ball. In connection with Artspace’s City-Wide Open Studios and its Game On! theme, our hope with this short film is to jog your memories and invite you to recall the sports you took part in and share with us what was at stake. If you know someone who attended or played in any games at or around the Armory, please encourage them to step forward. We know that the basketball hoops inside the Drill Hall have witnessed some great local history.

Your story is a gift to New Haven’s next generation, and is part of our collective identity. The wonderful team at Baobab Studios will record and edit your recollections and create a podcast to be broadcast on local radio in 2017.Thank you for sharing!
