It is a delight to present mixed media pieces, as well as wonderfully unique pieces we never expected! We appreciate all of the creativity that came out of these difficult and strange times of drastic change, and we are so honoured to be able to include them in our archive.
We must acknowledge the ways in which we record events has drastically changed. It goes beyond history textbooks and statistics. We hope that this archive inspires you to record your living history, your stories and memories, your dreams and ideas in ways that feel right for you.
Thank you for taking the time to look through our digital archive. We ask that you, the viewer, to take the time to reflect on your personal history and voice. Have you been telling your story? Reclaiming your personal truths? Who speaks for our community? The Quarantine Qapsule (QQ) is one place where we can take agency in our personal storytelling. We highly encourage you to keep creating and find spaces where your voice is heard, beyond the QQ, to continue our goal to make racialized voices prevalent and accessible across archives.
