A community archive project to document Mesa's experiences with COVID-19


This project seeks to preserve the human experience of living in Mesa during the COVID-19 health crisis by documenting the reactions and resilience of our residents through stories, interviews, and other forms of creative expression for future use by students, researchers, educators, the general public.

We do not yet know the lasting impacts of the COVID-19 virus, and the way forward is still unfolding, but your contributions will help build a collection of experiences to help future generations understand the history we are now living.

We want to hear from you.
