COVID Stories

The New Normal

First Person Arts is practicing social distancing like everyone else across the country and the world. But that won’t keep us from being an embracing environment in which you can share your true personal stories. So, welcome to COVID Stories- a digital memoir from the pandemic.

Stories from Philadelphia.

 People over the world are experiencing a health crisis that hasn’t been collectively experienced in hundreds of years. We believe that everyone has a story to tell and that sharing our stories connects us with each other and the world. From the hilarious to the heartbreaking, COVID Stories helps us bear a little of our souls, laugh in the face of a monster and connect through a story that is just like yours. Whatever you are feeling or thinking during this time, we want you to know that you are not alone, and somehow we’ll get through this together.

How to Share your Story

Every 3 days, we will issue a new prompt on our website and social media platforms. These prompts can be anything from, "What are your cooking during the pandemic," to "What has social distancing taught you about yourself that you didn't know". We ask that you record your 5-minute story and email it to us with the subject COVID Stories. If you have any questions, you can also email us.
