Make Your Family Part Of The DIGIE Wall In Downtown El Paso
One of the 2012 Quality of Life Bond projects that changed the way downtown El Paso looked was the installation of a digital wall. The interactive wall of computer screens allowed visitors to scroll through a number of different periods of time in the city's history to learn all about El Paso and the surrounding area. It is really a fun and educational downtown landmark. DIGIE is also the only one of it's kind in the United States.
You can see the personal memories of El Pasoans, their families, their histories, and the way they all came together to build El Paso. Thousands of pictures have been uploaded to DIGIE since it opened in 2015, as well as films and music. You can also create postcards and send them to any location in the world while you are at DIGIE. You can be a part of DIGIE by uploading your photos and stories to digie.org. You can download your family's stories and photos and become a part of El Paso history.
On February 8, you can attend a free event exploring DIGIE. From 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department will have a Keepsakes + Recuerdos workshop. The inter-generational creative writing workshop will allow participants to write personal messages to people who’ve made a difference in their lives and even get the chance to create a 2020 time capsule. You can also find out how to create a historical archive of your family using DIGIE.
