Be part of Burnaby’s History

Burnaby Village Museum is asking for your help to collect experiences, stories, photos, videos, objects and mementos that will help document this time of COVID-19 in Burnaby.

What can you donate?

We welcome any items documenting your everyday experiences during the pandemic. Share how COVID-19 is affecting you through physical objects, photographs, videos, audio recordings, letters, diaries and more. We are encouraging physical items for donation such as hearts for healthcare workers, painted rocks, signs of support, etc.

Why Are We Doing this?

We want to document the effects of the pandemic on our community and everyday lives to preserve it for future generations. These materials will be used for future exhibits at the Museum and around Burnaby, and shared online for future research.

How to contribute:

  1. To submit a photo, video or other file electronically, please email Kate, Assistant Curator, at kate.petrusa@burnaby.ca.
  2. To donate a physical item, please contact Kate at kate.petrusa@burnaby.ca or 604-297-4559.

We look forward to your submissions!
