Broward County Library Launches New South Florida COVID-19 Project
Creative contributions for COVID-19 capsule sought from residents
South Floridians of all ages are invited to share their COVID-19 experiences by submitting original work to the South Florida COVID-19 Project being assembled by Broward County Library.
In the interest of supporting the community, Broward County Library is gathering material for the South Florida COVID-19 Project, creating a capsule for residents to share their unique work and COVID-19 experience. The library hopes to capture a diverse range of submissions that reflect how the pandemic has impacted the local economy, culture, behavior and values. The capsule as a historical record will memorialize this unique time for future generations.
Journal entries, poems, drawings, music, videos, photos and other media are welcome for consideration in this historic South Florida archive. The submission process is free and requires little time to upload. All materials may be submitted electronically at the South Florida COVID-19 Project web page.
While there is no limit to the number of submissions, creatives are encouraged to be selective. Project guidelines require that the work be original; all rights to the work be owned by the contributor; a short description accompany the work; and that content be appropriate for all ages.
