Program Description

Event Details

Bring a photo from an event, a newspaper, a letter - anything of importance to you, and we'll scan it to archive and share for an exhibition. An exhibition will be created for the community, and some documents be shared on through a webpage. You can choose the level of information you'd like to share.  We will also share information about archiving resources for this project and beyond. 

The purpose of this project is to develop a better understanding of the role that underrepresented communities played in the history and evolution of Sheboygan County, as well as educating and creating a model for continued data collection, communications, and partnerships. In this project, we will be engaging with specific communities including to collect and archive information and create opportunities for engagement and exhibition. The project will include educational workshops that weave into the project including storytelling or exhibiting to help communities tell their stories into the future.
