The Project:

History Colorado's Museum of Memory is a public history initiative that works together with Colorado residents to co-author a shared history. The initiative works to reanimate, center, and amplify the histories that have long existed only in the margins and create the opportunity for the community to decide how to remember its collective past.

As of July 2022, History Colorado has initiated a Museum of Memory project for Denver's Sun Valley neighborhood. Sun Valley is a neighborhood that has experienced many transformations - from an industrial, working class Jewish neighborhood, to a neighborhood made up largely of African refugees and Vietnamese immigrants, to its most recent transformation into a dense, mixed-income neighborhood.

Our Role:

As Museum of Memory Fellow, Lindsay helped lead the project by overseeing three community connectors - residents from the neighborhood charged with connecting with past, current, and future residents. She organized all project activities and facilitated communications between History Colorado staff, Sun Valley Kitchen + Community Center (HC's partner organization during the project), and Sun Valley residents.

 

Lindsay organized memory workshops with Sun Valley residents, including a photo scanning day, for former and current Sun Valley residents to reconnect with each other, share their stories, and submit their photos to the History Colorado archive.
