COVID-19 Stories

Chalk message of hope on a sidewalk. It says Tough times don't last, but tough people do.
Collecting COVID-19 Stories

Call for COVID-19 Community Stories


The COVID-19 pandemic is a historic event that we are all experiencing together. While Kalamazoo and other communities around the world live through history in the making, we at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum want to hear your stories—through journals, thoughts, images, and more—to make sure that our community’s experiences are remembered. Each individual perspective during this time is valuable and adds to our community’s story as a whole.

Please tell us how the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has impacted you, your family, your work or schooling, or other areas of your day-to-day life. Share what is important you and include photos to accompany your story if you’d like. We welcome all thoughts and experiences as part of this important collecting initiative.
