MATV/UMA and the City of Malden invite you to participate in a community media project that is documenting, showcasing, and archiving our collective experience during this time of social distancing, disruption, and ongoing challenge.
Participate by posting a message, video, picture, virtual event, poem, podcast, etc on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube using the hashtag #maldentogether. For Facebook, post an image (only) directly to MATV's Facebook page. For those who do not use social media you can send your post to us. All posts will appear on a media wall refreshed and available on our website and in MATV/UMA’s front window. Representative posts will also be downloaded and compiled into a video as an archive of this challenging time in our city’s history.
Many thanks to local artist Busha Husak for re-working a version of the city logo to reflect this hashtag.
