ABOUT COVID STORIES
Created at the height of the pandemic in April 2020, this project was a continuation of The Clinic’s very first workshop series in 2019. Our nurses did not want to stop meeting, so we gathered monthly to continue to be in community and care with one another. Shortly after COVID hit, we realized we needed each other now more than ever. COVID Stories was created as we reflected upon our current COVID experience as nurses, through storytelling, using the prompt “ I remember when ...After that I”. We then used our stories to create movement together offering a somatic-based approach to storytelling. These movement stories were then shared together in public spaces, empowering nurses to use both their voices and bodies to create social awareness and change.
