Virtually There Summer Contest

About the Contest

This contest will help the community remember and re-envision the GI physical space while we’re all sadly separated from it. Contest entries will seek to recapture feelings, visuals, or stories about the goingson, memories, or longings for the building we’re locked out of. These can be serious, funny, contemplative, research-amped, meme-y—whatever you want to express.
