Call for Contributions
Many people’s daily lives changed with the lockdowns and movement restrictions that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought. We invite you to draw a map of your neighborhood or environment to capture how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted (or not) your use and understanding of space. This can include drawings/images of your home, your neighborhood, your city or beyond. Maps can come in many forms, styles, perspectives, and mediums.
How: Please share your maps using this link: https://uic.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9LGsseOd5Jnv2Ch
When: We are accepting submissions on a rolling basis through June 30, 2020.
Why: As researchers who work within public health, community participation, and disability studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Department of Disability and Human Development, we are interested in collecting these maps to capture and better understand the experiences of disability and the environment during the coronavirus pandemic. We plan to share these maps through an online public display as a project aimed at capturing community knowledge, shared experiences, and creative expression.
