The Northeast India AV Archive
Collaboration with the Artist Community of Meghalaya
Archiving the Covid-19 Pandemic in Meghalaya
CoVID19 Pandemic. Some call it war; some see end times, some dystopia. But this uncertainty cannot be an occasion for uncertain silence. The Northeast India AV Archive is creating KHLAM – an archive of this pandemic by collecting experiences and impressions of how CoVid19 has affected everyday lives in Meghalaya. KHLAM will attempt to be a witness to the changes which are being wrought, policies which are being actualized, and even those moments which continue to remain the same. KHLAM comes from Khasi-Pnar word for pestilence or pandemic. We appeal to you to contribute photographs, screen captures of social media, media, communications, memes, and other expressions of the moment, audio histories, Video clips, Links, Text, emails, announcements, text messages, scientific documents, and flyers etc. Basically, any material which you think can lead us to not only remember this moment but also take lessons from it is welcome. You can contribute via the form below or contact us via email for any material which you can not upload via the contact form.
