Capturing the Heart of the Story
The Enable Alliance is working with Jen Owen to capture the history of the e-NABLE Community as a timeline and gallery of images, video and objects. The first display of the history was a series of posters documenting the timeline at the start of ENABLECON 2017.
Capturing the Primary Source Artifacts
The e-NABLE Alliance collects artifacts and shares them when possible as part of training, confirming previous interpretation of evidence, and storytelling. Artifacts are stored with individuals, at hubs including the Living Classroom at SUNY Polytechnic Institute, with museums around the world, and with outreach advocates for workshops and discussions.
Put Your Marker Down
Everyone in the e-NABLE community is invited to include their history in the timeline and add their images, devices, prototypes, and ephemera as part of capturing the history.
Create your own time capsule and send us the manifest and pictures of the contents and message you are sending to the future e-NABLE Community. Check out the time capsule project started in 2020 by Joel Leonard during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A virtual archive is under development. Please contact us at [email protected]. If you would like to send links or electronic files, please send permission for enablingthefuture.org and the e-NABLE Alliance to use and share your work.
If you would like to contribute to the physical collection of materials, designs, tools and objects, please send items to: e-NABLE Alliance; 5305 Village Center Drive, Ste. 206; Columbia, MD 21044. Thank you!
