You can play a part in documenting Vashon’s COVID-19 history for the future.
The Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Museum, along with VashonBePrepared and the Vashon Library, is collecting and preserving your stories and artifacts - cultural "data points" - to reveal how the history of this COVID-19 Pandemic connects us all. What we collect today will inform generations to come.
If you would like to contribute to the Vashon COVID-19 Archive Project, here are some ideas of what we're looking for...
- Digital content, for example screen shots of COVID-19 related web pages, emails, memes on social media
- Audio recordings
- Videos (click here for an example)
- Written anecdotes or observation
- Anything related to the coronavirus pandemic and your experience that you think would be interesting to someone ten, twenty, or one hundred years from now
If you have questions, please email to Archives@VashonBePrepared.org which includes representatives from the Vashon Library, Vashon Heritage Museum and VashonBePrepared) and we will assist you. Volunteers looking to help out can simultaneously email that address and also volunteer@VashonBePrepared.org.
