Dear Glenbow: Collecting Letters from our Community

130 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB, T2G 0P3 [map]
-
Glenbow Museum is inviting all Calgarians and Albertans to participate in a community collecting initiative to document this unique time we are living through.
Write us a letter, send us a postcard, tell us a story. What are the things you have experienced over the past few months? What is important to you right now? What are your hopes for the future? Tell us something about your life in 2020. Your letter can be as long or as short as you need it to be. Send us a photo or a drawing if it adds to your story.
Your story will be added to Glenbow's permanent collection to record the historic moment we're living through in Alberta (for now and for future generations). More information about this project is available on the Glenbow website: https://www.glenbow.org/programs/dear-glenbow/
Additional Details & Skills Required
Glenbow encourages people to send physical letters in the mail, as those tangible objects will be a great representation of people’s creativity and personal expression. We will also accept digital submissions, such as emails, social media messages, photographs or illustrations. Letters will be accepted until July 31, 2020.

Mail your letter to:

Or send by email: dearglenbow@glenbow.org
Certification or Education Required
All experiences welcome
Why should you volunteer for this opportunity?
Our hope is that these letters will spark new projects or initiatives, now or in the future. Glenbow's goal is to create a collection of personal stories from people with all kinds of perspectives, and to make it accessible and meaningful to our community, both now and in the future.
