PORTLAND — The city is collecting stories about four Portland neighborhoods as part of a project documenting the history of those neighborhoods.

The project, called Meeting Place, is aimed at increasing pride, awareness, participation, and diversity in neighborhood organizations.

The Maine Historical Society, a project partner, will host four workshops and present historical images and details from each neighborhood. Portland residents and former residents will be invited to share their own memories and photographs. The workshops are:

— West End: Tuesday, July 24th, 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

— Bayside: Wednesday, July 25th, 2012, 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

— East Bayside: Tuesday, July 31st, 2012, 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

— Libbytown: Wednesday, August 1st, 2012, 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

All workshops will be held at the historical society at 489 Congress St.

The gathered stories will be linked to other neighborhood art projects and will be displayed in the neighborhoods in September.
