The Oshawa Museum is documenting the impact of COVID-19 on the Oshawa community through a variety of methods.
We are collaborating with Empty Cup Media to produce an oral history project collecting videos and interviews with the citizens of Oshawa as they experience daily life during a pandemic.
An important component of the project will be to collect your thoughts, photographs, diaries and other items that tell the story of how you are coping in these extraordinary times.
How can you help us collect history as it’s happening?
- Contact Colin at Empty Cup Media (firstname.lastname@example.org) and be interviewed about your experiences living through COVID-19
- Keep a diary! Write down your daily habits, record how things have changed. Donate your diary to the archives to help us preserve what life was like in 2020.
- Contact Jennifer Weymark, Archivist, to explore other ways you can help us document history as it unfolds in real time: email@example.com.
