Please join our panel discussion of distinguished guests as we discuss the historical impact of the COVID-19 virus on our community, efforts by local cultural heritage institutions to document the pandemic, and how participants of these projects have shown profound strength in sharing their personal stories through photography, stories, and multimedia outlets.
