When did you realize COVID-19 would change the world as we knew it? How has COVID-19 changed you, or your life? The pandemic isn’t 100% over, but it has changed so many of us, and our society, in deep and profound ways. How will we remember these COVID times? Whose pandemic stories are already recorded, and whose still need to be told? Join us to explore how preserving our stories, and the stories of our families, neighborhoods, and communities, might help us see differently, remember, and begin to heal. Through small-group discussion, creative exercises with pictures and words, and engagement with cultural specialists, we will explore how journaling can help expand our capacity for self-care, history-writing, and change-making in our tough and troubled world.
This program will run two hours followed by dinner provided. Thank you to our Encounters partnership! Learn more about the project, partners, and Fall series here: https://humanrights.uconn.edu/category/events/dodd-impact-events/democracy-dialogues-events/encounters-series/
