Virtual Bethel: Underrepresented History and Primary Source Education through Virtual Reality (2016-present, funded by Indiana University’s New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities Program, ($49,773), funding year 2017-2018;  PI: Ayoung Yoon, Co-PIs: Andrea Copeland, Owen J. Dwyer, III, Zebulun Wood and Albert William)

* This project is a part of Bethel Preservation project, led by Andrea Copeland. Read more about the project: “The Bethel AME Church Archive: Partners and Participants

The Virtual Bethel project aims to build a 3D virtual space of the physical church building to preserve the cultural heritage. The 3D Virtual Bethel will be used as a learning space for undergraduate students’ history and primary source education, as users can interact with various types of primary sources (e.g., photographs, videos, audios, and text) to learn about the underrepresented history of African Americans associated with the church.

The overall objective of this project is to explore how bridges can be constructed between existing cultural institutions (libraries, archives and museums) and community archives (or community groups wanting to develop archives) as well as the role of third parties in bridging these groups.
