This three-part workshop that began on Zoom due to Omicron, and moved to in-person in March, guided participants to express their experiences of the pandemic through images and words. Using family and neighborhood photographs, images taken during the workshops, oral storytelling and collective writing initiated in the workshop and from mutual interviews, we created stories of loss and resilience. Together, we marked communal struggles and hopes as well as imagining strategies for justice and repair. Some of our poetry, letters, spirit cards, collages, and stories were shared in the final exhibition.
