My Dearest Friends Project

A COVID-19 Collaboration between DisArt and Oaklee Thiele

During this time of sheltering in place, DisArt and artist Oaklee Thiele seek to create an inclusive documentation of our collective experiences as a Disabled community. We invite you to submit written, audio, and video observations that detail your experiences with, reactions to, and ponderings on our current COVID-19 reality. Through this collaborative community-based project, we aim to find solace and togetherness in our shared experiences. 

Oaklee Thiele will create illustrations for all submissions.
