During lockdown, the phone was one of the only means through which we could connect with loved ones. Recalling this moment, this project solicits anonymous callers from all over New York City to call (917) 781-4612. They are given four prompts to choose from: 

  • “Have a story about the pandemic you want others to hear?”
  • “An important moment in time from the past two years you want to describe?”
  • “Want to say something about your COVID experience that you’ve been afraid to share?”
  • “Want to sing a song that got you through the pandemic?”

Pick up your cell phone and call to share your anonymous feelings, or  listen to the recorded stories and songs.
