Stories from the pandemic. A lasting testimony from Sheffield.
We are all living through a historic global event. No community has been untouched by the pandemic. In a very real sense, we are finding our way through this together. But what the experience of living through such a global, universal event actually feels like is particular to every individual living it.
Despite the universality of this crisis, the texture of its experience for each of us has, by its very nature, been isolating. We all stand witness to a totalising event in our own discrete, specific ways.
Part of Sheffield’s Covid-19 memorial activity, this city wide project is in partnership with Opus, Compassionate Sheffield, Sheffield City Council, Sheffield City Archives, and Lab 4 Living, the project aims to gather stories from the people of Sheffield to inform and strengthen the city’s memorial plans.
Contributions, drawn from all walks of life, will form a lasting testimony and historical record of the pandemic’s impact from the perspective of individuals and the communities they live in.
Let's celebrate the small acts of kindness, support positive change and remember those we have lost.
Everyone has a story.
