CREATING THE ARCHIVE OF TOMORROW
What is the Community History Project (CHP)?
- The Community History Project at the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History (CHS) is community-driven history-making made possible by a Museums for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
- Over two years the CHP will use contemporary collecting practices to strengthen communities and document the diverse experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Community members are invited to document and preserve their experiences as residents of Connecticut for themselves and their community, and for future historians and future exhibits at the CMCH.
- CHP ensures that stories from the most impacted and historically marginalized communities during COVID are not lost to time.
