Documenting Atlanta’s response to COVID-19

Atlanta History Center is collecting materials that illustrate how people are experiencing and responding to the COVID-19 crisis. No matter where you are in the Atlanta area, we have all been impacted in some way as states, cities, municipalities, and businesses impose restrictions in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Atlanta History Center seeks to document and preserve your experiences through digital video, audio, photography, and typed stories or personal reflections. For more specific examples of the types of materials we are looking for, please read our blog post.

The stories and materials we collect will allow all of us to study and share these experiences in the future. To write your story, or to submit a file or URL, please use our Collection Form below. For assistance, please contact collections@atlantahistorycenter.com.


CONTRIBUTING PHYSICAL ITEMS

We are doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home and cannot currently collect physical material; however, we still want to collect your items that demonstrate the impact of COVID-19 on our region. Items that are of interest to us represent the economic, social, or public health impact of the coronavirus such as school curriculum packets, business or personal signage, finished crafts, or physical mementos of your experience while at home.

To offer physical objects for this project, please send a description and a photograph, if possible, of what you have to collections@atlantahistorycenter.com so we can set up an appointment with you to collect those items after the pandemic has passed.

To learn more about our usual donation process or to donate any historic Atlanta material, review our Frequently Asked Questions.
