Community and Resilience: A Participatory Exhibit

As part of the 2015-2016 Common Experience surrounding the documentary film Bury the Hatchet, you are invited to submit materials for inclusion in Community and Resilience: A Participatory Exhibit, which will appear in Monroe Hall, 1st floor, from August 2015 - May 2016.

Bury the Hatchet documents the Mardi Gras Indians in New Orleans before, during, and after Hurrican Katrina, but also explores broader issues such as the role community plays in resilience.

We ask you to donate digital files including photographs, posters, your written stories, and other items you may have that speak to these issues. Of particular interest are:

  • documents related to the Loyola community's experience during Hurricane Katrina;
  • Loyola's role in rebuilding New Orleans;
  • examples of what community means to you; and
  • the broader roles communities play in defining and transforming society.

The material in the exhibit will change periodically throughout the year, so your materials may not be on display for the entire duration of the exhibit.

To submit your materials, please fill out this form and submit with your digital files. You must fill out the form separately for each file. Please read the Terms and Conditions before submitting.

We would like to add digital copies of these materials to Monroe Library's digital collections in Special Collections & Archives following the exhibit. Please indicate on the upload form if you are the copyright holder of this item (meaning you either took the photograph or were the original author of the document you submitted).

If you have questions, please email or call at your convenience. We look forward to collaborating with you on this special project!
