HISTORY HARVEST: MARINELAND
Date: Sunday, October 10
Location: Crisp-Ellert Art Museum
Do you have memories of Marineland? Photos? Slides? Brochures? Postcards?
Then help us build our digital archive! Flagler College’s Digital Humanities Center is seeking your contributions to tell the story of this local attraction. During our History Harvest, we will scan your old photographs, slides, and memorabilia. You will leave with your items intact and your contributions made public on our digital archive!
Why are your photographs important? Because history often leaves out the audience. We know the history of Marineland through its organizational archives, but we know little about the everyday experience of the place and its marine residents. How did Marineland shape your view of marine life? Community contributions will help us learn more about human-animal interactions.
Over the course of its 83-year history, Marineland has grown, shifted, and changed. Help us tell the story of Marineland’s animal life and increase our understanding of how our community has lived alongside non-human creatures!
