Call for Applications: Covid Disability Archive
The Covid Disability Archive is launching, and needs submissions from the public to show the realities of how the Coronavirus Pandemic has uniquely affected the Disabled community.
Anything can be submitted, memorials, art, screenshots, texts, letters, videos, writing, memes, news stories, social media posts. Anything that illustrates your experience as a Disabled/chronically ill person during this time.
Even if it seems mundane. Especially if it seems mundane.
These will be part of an online, easily accessible archive which can be referenced by historians and researchers in the future, or present, to fully understand and appreciate the impact the decisions made had on Disabled people and to ensure we are not forgotten.
Submissions can be anything, memorials for lost loved ones, art you’ve created during lockdowns, screenshots of video calls, letters delaying medical treatment, news items and anything else you can think of.
There are no limits on the number of submissions.
Submissions can be sent directly to CovidDisabilityArchive@gmail.com.
