The COVID-19 pandemic is changing our life, both individually and globally. Although the modern world has gone through other major epidemics, this one takes on an unprecedented appearance. We can already perceive its dimension as trauma, something that will resize human relationships, our interaction in public spaces, and our perspective on time. #MemóriasCovid19 is a platform created to allow different journeys to intersect from the point of view of identity. They will transmit their narratives through traits and images, uniting elements experienced by human groups from different social spectra. The current moment is significant for establishing new projects, foreseeing new horizons, and establishing strategies to better face the uncertain future. While in this horizon of waiting, we can gather narratives as a way to collect and preserve fragments of experiences and perceptions. This is a space where you can share written stories, photographs, drawings, letters, audio, songs, and videos about your personal experiences during the pandemic. The collected material will be submitted to the Curatorial Committee; those selected will be notified and published on the platform #MemóriasCOVID19. It is up to the applicant to authorize, or not, the disclosure of her/his identity.
