The “Digital Monument”

Now that FAM’s capital campaign for the physical monument is complete, FAM can focus on fundraising and producing what we call our “Digital Monument”:

  • recording interviews with survivors, activists, community leaders and caregivers;
  • collecting diverse stories from the public;
  • building a timeline of significant events related to HIV/AIDS;
  • capturing video footage from FAM’s events;
  • producing an audio tour for visitors to the Monument; and
  • creating audio recordings of selected postings on The AIDS Memorial on Instagram (@TheAIDSMemorial) so that stories of loss, resilience, activism and community can be heard while walking through the monument

The Digital Monument’s collection of stories will be housed in FAM’s redesigned mobile-friendly website which is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2021. The website redesign is being done by Loyal Design.

FAM’s upcoming events (including in-person gatherings, when safe) will focus on education, as well as community outreach and engagement.
