The City of Malden will be collaborating with MATV (soon to be UMA, Urban Media Arts) on a new initiative called: #maldentogether. This multi-media project is intended to help unite residents during this pandemic crisis as we work to emerge out of it in the coming months.
An online “Social Wall” has been created to collect and combine social media posts that use the hashtag #maldentogether. Residents are encouraged to express thoughts and reflections, photos, videos, artwork, poetry and words of encouragement that will be posted on this wall to be shared with the rest of the community. The City is grateful to Malden artist Busha Husak who modified the City’s logo to reflect the new hashtag.
As this is an unprecedented moment in our history the idea is to document, share words of support, and archive this time for future generations to remember how the residents of Malden coped with this pandemic by working together.
Residents who don’t use social media may contribute to this wall by sending contributions to MATV/UMA, 145 Pleasant Street, Malden, MA or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit matv.org/maldentogether to contribute. This information will also soon be on the City’s website www.cityofmalden.org.
