The coronavirus pandemic is a global tragedy, and Detroit is one of the hardest-hit cities in the U.S.
In normal times, we look to our artists and thinkers to help explain the age we live in. But the arts community is also suffering economic anxiety brought on by the pandemic.
So, WDET is launching “COVID Diaries: Stories of Resilience,” a six-week, multimedia introspective that supports the local arts community and taps into our shared experience of the novel coronavirus.
COVID Diaries: Stories of Resilience
The first assignment: “Take a Breath.”
We asked these artists — all of different backgrounds and perspectives on the city — to share photos, audio diaries, and creative writing that illustrate the moments that bond us as we care for ourselves and each other.
Each artist will receive the same weekly assignment to document their world through the lens of a particular theme. The resulting work will be exhibited on WDET’s Instagram, at wdet.org and on CultureShift, WDET’s daily culture program.
The first assignment, which will begin publishing next week: “Take a Breath.”
