We are living in a historic moment. The COVID-19 pandemic is perhaps one of those events that change or mark a generation. Recognizing the importance and unique opportunity for us to document experiences and collective memories while we are living through uncertain times together, the Arlington Heights Memorial Library invites local community members to share their stories, artifacts and any form of artistic or creative expression about living during the pandemic. The goal of the Arlington Heights COVID-19 Story Project is to create a library collection that will enable our community and future generations to learn about the resilience of Arlington Heights. The library aims to create a permanent historic document by exhibiting or publishing the work digitally and/or physically in the future.
In this session, you will learn about how you can contribute to the Arlington Heights COVID-19 Story Project from the library staff. You will also create work during the session that can turn into a contribution to the project through a series of short, guided creative activities. Recommended for adults, but open to all ages.
Must register to participate in this live, online event. It will take place on Zoom and you will receive a link to participate by email.
