Postcards from the Pandemic

The file consists of 540 individual postcards that were created by the artist collective BOXCARSIX in the Victoria region during the COVID-19 pandemic between 2020 and 2021.

Postcards from the Pandemic is a collaborative mail art project of over 900 postcards that were created by artists in and around Victoria, BC in the depths of social lockdown created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was begun in March 2020 by members of BOXCARSIX Artist Collective to stay connected during lockdown. Each artist initiated a series of postcards leaving space in each one for another person to add and respond to. Each card was then mailed on to another artist to add to and potentially complete the postcard.

Each postcard has been assigned its own unique PDP number and is stored in its own folder. See finding aid for container descriptions.
