Skokie Stories: COVID-19 Collection

Be part of the historic record of these momentous times and help us tell the story of now for future generations. Share your experiences--pictures, writing, video, artwork, audio recordings, and more--in our Stories in the Time of COVID digital collection. Describe a day in your life (balancing family, work, and/ or school); upload a picture of yourself in a mask or something you made in quarantine; share a poem you wrote; tell us about your favorite business (closed or still thriving); reflect on protest or political unrest that you've witnessed or participated in; screenshot your social media posts; share what you've learned, who you've lost, what you're dreaming about, and where you want to go next.

We would especially love to see submissions from Skokie and the surrounding community, but everyone's stories--all ages and voices--are welcome. We will continue collecting submissions through the months ahead. Questions? Please email us.
