The Covid-19 health crisis has had a major impact on people’s lives around the world, and Alberta is no exception.
From self-isolating at home to lost jobs, navigating grocery stores and getting used to physically distancing from friends and family, the pandemic has had an effect on our daily interactions and psyche. Calgary’s Glenbow Museum is inviting Albertans to share their stories, letters, drawings and photos about how the Covid-19 Pandemic has affected their lives.
When you send Glenbow a letter as part of this project, it will be incorporated into their permanent collection. Personal testimonies will be a way for future generations to understand this unique time that we are all living through. Glenbow’s goal is to collect things that will be accessible and meaningful to our community, both now and in the future.
Lisa Wilton spoke with Jenny Conway Fisher from the Glenbow Museum about the project:
