It’s a difficult chapter that we are all living through right now, and many people have had to find ways to help raise their spirits. Whether it’s picking up a new hobby, getting in touch with loved ones consistently, or maybe really just taking time to get to know yourself again, everyone is coping differently. But what isn’t so different is that need to connect shared human experience to persevere through uncertainty.
First Person Arts recognizes that, and has created a digital memoir platform for all amidst this global pandemic, “Covid Stories.”
The local nonprofit organization has been serving the City of Brotherly Love with memoirs and documentaries shining a light on unique personal experiences for almost two decades, and just because the world has seemed to slow down to stop the spread of the coronavirus, what hasn’t slowed down is the instinct to connect with others. “Covid Stories” follows First Person Art’s enveloping creative model and offers everyone a chance to tell their story while self-isolating.
