In 2020 COVID-19 swept across Tkaronto/Toronto forcing many to change how they go about daily lives and interact with each other. Two curators working for the City of Toronto endeavoured to collect and share these stories. The project they launched resulted in a community developed, co-curated, mixed and transmedia exhibition that fully embraces Prime Access Consulting's (PAC) Inclusive Design Methodology. The exhibition surfaces the impact of Covid-19 on communities for which museums have historically been unwelcoming spaces, in an inclusively accessible manner.
