About this COVID Storytelling Project

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” –Maya Angelou

The Oregon COVID-19 Storytelling Project presents expressions of art and stories about community members’ personal experiences of COVID-19 and Long COVID. This project offers a platform for communities most impacted by the pandemic to share experiences, stories and the impacts of living in the COVID-19 pandemic in Oregon.
