The National Museum of Bermuda is putting out an open call for the community to share their COVID-19 images and stories to be collected for historical record. "Historians rely on first-hand accounts, memoirs, journals, photographs, art, music, and poetry to get a glimpse of the humanity behind history’s most significant events. Newspapers, official government documents and media coverage will provide future historians with information on how local, national and international leaders responded to the crisis but the records of everyday life are equally important. Though you may not think your story is museum-worthy it is. Creating this digital archive will provide future historians with the everyday lived experience and show how the average person dealt with this unique historical moment." WHAT IS YOUR STORY? "Whether it’s a diary, journal, painting, drawing, photograph, poem or song we encourage you to submit your experiences, thoughts and reflections of what it is like living in Bermuda during the coronavirus pandemic: waiting in line at the grocery store virtual gatherings virtual learning/gym classes closed offices emptiness of streets and separation from family and friends. Are you a parent at home with children? Are you working from home or are you a frontline worker? What does it look like if you go out for a walk or to the grocery store? How are you staying connected to family and friends?" HOW TO TAKE PART Post your photos to Instagram or Facebook using the hashtag #UnitedTogetherBDA and tag @nationalmuseumbermuda.
