Voces of a Pandemic Virtual Showcase
January 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm CST
Experience the pain, loss and resilience of our community. Join Voces Oral History Center Founder and Director Maggie Rivas-Rodriguez for this special, virtual showcase to learn about the themes that have emerged from our Voces of a Pandemic Oral History project and hear excerpts from selected interviews.
- In collaboration with more than a dozen institutions of higher education across the country, Voces of a Pandemic is an organized and ambitious multi-university research partnership documenting the first-hand accounts of the impact on our Latino community, from families hit by COVID, to frontline health care workers, the stress on essential workers, as well as the impacts of job loss in the recession.
- The coronavirus crisis is magnifying parts of our society that need attention and improvement, and likewise these past months have called people forward to help in creative, new ways – often from the isolation of their home.
The Jan. 17 showcase also features Nikki Diaz, an Austin artist who translated Voces of a Pandemic visually with Raíces Fuertes y Corazones Fuertes, who will explain her interpretative process that captures the pain, loss and resilience of our community.
We hope you will join to hear these stories and perhaps even imagine for yourself how you can uniquely step forward and help your neighbors near and far in this time of great need.
