#OnHoldAtHome was conceived during the first week of lockdown by photographer Tania del Carmen Fernández and creative director Rachel Scott Everett of EVERGIB. Inspired by a social distancing gathering, they joined forces to begin documenting the lives of people in their neighborhood, collecting stories of fears, hopes and lessons learned. 

As weeks turned into months, the project expanded to feature people in different neighborhoods, reflecting the diverse community and perspectives that make up the Greater Richmond Region. During this time, the challenges of the pandemic were met with the global rise of protests over George Floyd’s killing, bringing the topic of racial and social inequality front and center. 

What began as a project to unite people through shared experiences of sheltering in place has now transformed into a powerful documentation of this historic time in our city and the world at large.

During this virtual RVA First Fridays event, the collaborators will talk about the project and their experiences connecting with project participants across Richmond.
