Monaghan County Museum Calendar 2021
In March 2020, the museum staff were faced with the challenge of continuing to provide a service to the community from behind closed doors.
As we moved much of our programmes online, we also knew we needed to keep interacting with the public we serve. We decided to launch a new project entitled ‘Recording Our Experience’.
Monaghan County Museum asked the people of Monaghan to send us images and stories, which reflected their experience of Covid 19.The response was tremendous, and the museum is building up a memory archive of life in Monaghan during this challenging and historic time, which generations to come will study and learn from. It is the intention of the museum to mount a major exhibition reflecting this archive but as the crisis continues, we decided to feature some of the images in our calendar for 2021.
Monaghan County Museum is still actively collecting for the archive, so please send your image(s) and/or story to firstname.lastname@example.org
Monaghan County Museum looks forward to welcoming you all back to the museum and in the meantime please enjoy this glimpse in our collective experience of life in a pandemic.
Monaghan County Museum would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the project so far, your continued support is invaluable to us.
The calendars are available free of charge from the museum from Thursday, December 10th. Numbers are limited however to one copy per person.
The museum is operating on limited opening hours at present of Monday to Friday 12pm to 4pm.
The calendar is also available to download at the museum website on www.monaghan.ie/museum
