Covid: Primary Sources
The Covid Pandemic at Two Years: Join BLR editors and authors for a reflection on creativity in the face of a global pandemic, from both artists and healthcare workers who experienced it firsthand. Presented in collaboration with the Gold Foundation.
In the early days of the pandemic, people from all walks of life turned toward creativity to grapple with the overwhelming fear, isolation, and loss. Whether keeping a journal, writing poetry, making music, or painting, we used artistic expression to document those extraordinary times and maintain our sense of humanity. Now, two years on, art remains a critical tool to help us interrogate, memorialize, and heal.
Covid: Primary Sources is a conversation with healthcare workers, poets and writers who’ve interpreted the pandemic in a variety of ways. Hosted by BLR Editor-in-Chief Danielle Ofri and BLR Board Member Ashley McMullen, the event will feature BLR authors Benjamin Kessler, Shanda McManus, Mallika Sekhar, and Haolun Xu, exploring our relationship to the pandemic then, now, and beyond.Buy tickets/get more info now
