Title: Getting (Through) This Together: A Community-Based Archival Collaboration
Abstract: Document your Story: COVID-19 Pandemic Project Archive brought together three community organizations to collect and preserve material created during COVID-19 from many different perspectives. This project has collected material from a variety of community members, such as local artists, diarists, the local business community, Muncie citizens, and Ball State University students, faculty and staff. While this project started as a way to encourage people in Muncie and Delaware County, Ind., to tell their stories during this time, it has developed into a mechanism for continued collaboration within our community. In this session, we will discuss the collaboration process, the steps taken to collect material and future plans to create a digital community archive.
