Collecting COVID-19 Experiences

As we struggle to navigate these unprecedented events, we have the opportunity to ensure that future generations understand our COVID-19 experiences. PPHM is asking our community to submit their experience. Use the form link and information below to submit your photos, essays, videos and other material.

How can you take part?

  • Through written accounts of your thoughts and experiences during the pandemic. These could be essays, journals, or other narratives, describing your day-to-day activities, your reaction to local and national events, and your thoughts on the future.
  • Through photographs and other graphic works that show the response of your community.
  • Through audio or video that record the effects of the pandemic.
  • Through documents produced in response to the pandemic.For example, personal diaries, printed notices from local institutions, signs, newsletters, posters, etc., anything that demonstrates the changes imposed on our lives.

  • Places, dates, identification of images will aid greatly when interpreting these items.

  • Do not submit any non-original material under copyright.
