About the Project

The Harvey Memories Project is community-driven digital memory bank created through a partnership amount Rice University, Houston Public Library, Harris County Public Library, and the University of Houston Libraries.

The goal of the project is to help create a public archive of the memories of Hurricane Harvey’s effects on the Greater Houston Metropolitan Area and Texas at large. We collect, publish, and preserve images, videos, audio, and text-based stories that document people’s experience of Hurricane Harvey.

We envision that the contributions held in the repository will be used both by the general public and by researchers and students studying the history and lived experience of Hurricane Harvey.

The Harvey Memories Project is generously funded by the Rice Houston Engagement and Recovery Effort and by the Rice Humanities Research Center's Public Humanities Initiative.
