This is your chance to record history for the history books.
The Objectives of this Project are for you to:
Imagine in 15 years the history book photos showing life during this quarantine experience. What should the history book show about COVID -19 life?
What would people who have never experienced quarantining during a pendemic need to know about the experience? What image would describe YOUR experience of COVID-19 quarantine?
What experiences have you had that would make for great history book record of COVID 19? What would you like people to know about quarantining for a pendemic?
If you were preparing someone in the future for a similar experience what should they know? Is there a funny/sarcastic/surprising/amazing/sad/struggling experience worth telling about?

Poco Heritage Society is recording the COVID-19 quarantine experiences of the local Port Coqitlam citizens through a project that they have titled “QUARAN-TALES”. The purpose of Quaran-Tales is to record people’s personal experiences of this rare moment in history so that people in the distant future can view the records and understand just what COVID-19 quarantine life was really like. Poco Heritage Society understands the power that art has to speak “a thousand words”. This is your chance to be a part of the history books; to “write” history.
*If the photograph contains a picture of anyone other than you you need to have their written permission (they can email me) to be in the photo, because the photo is displayed publically on Poco Heritage’s website.
Go to Poco Heritage Society’s website, Quaran-Tales menu and view some of the examples of photos or artwork that have been submitted as a “Quaran-Tale”:
