THE TOMORROW FUND
Rest assured that during this time WHM is planning for the future. We are talking with our trustees, donors, members, and friends. We are holding committee meetings remotely on Zoom and other platforms. Our lean staff of nine is productively working from their homes and will be ready to rebound quickly when we return to the museum.
Current projects include:
• Working on the reinterpretation of Worcester’s storyline for the Fuller Industrial Gallery with contractors and architects to arrive at final plans to complement the work of our exhibit team and historians.
• Preparing for our major exhibit PRETTY POWERFUL: 100 Years of Voting & Style − the storyline has been drafted and we are filling the gaps in the Costume Collection with community loans and contributions.
• Documenting COVID-19 in Worcester at https://www.worcesterhistory.org/covid. At WHM, we are collecting stories, in partnership with WPI, of how our community is understanding and experiencing the current “new normal.” This archive will become part of the permanent collection of WHM and will be available, like our recent LGBTQ+ findings, via DigitalWorcester.com link from of website. TODAY is TOMORROW’S HISTORY.
• Continuing to embrace technology and social media to interact with and grow our audiences, keep them engaged remotely, and provide leisure and social connection during this challenging time. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for daily historic and fun posts or take a tour of Revolutionary Worcester at https://www.worcesterhistory.org/revolutionaryworcester with special thanks to WPI digital historian Joe Cullon.
