COVID COLLECTIONS
by Stephanie Florence
Edited and designed by Autumn Sjølie

In partnership with SkirtsAfire’s short film: Covid Collections that premiered at SkirtsAfire 2021

ABOUT THE BOOK
COVID COLLECTIONS is a community collaboration between members of ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, amiskwacîwâskahikan (Beaver Hills House or Edmonton) and from the greater Alberta region inclusive of BIPOC, disabled, 2SLGBTQIA+, mothers, sisters, daughters, artists, performers, poets, writers, academics, and more.

This collection of stories, artworks, poems, and writings account for the individual struggles that people have faced during COVID-19. Struggles may be universal, but they are not equal; some of our communities have been significantly impacted.

This book offers readers a chance to connect with Edmontonians and have compassion for the folks they make eye contact with or brush against on the street. As a collective, how do we wish to move forward in the aftermath of COVID-19? What do we need to change to ensure that all of our community members are taken care of? This book does not offer answers but offers perspective and proof that we need to implement new laws and systems based on empathy and understanding and not systemically racist, ableist, elitist, and dismissive.

COVID COLLECTIONS invites you into the reality and experiences of the neighbours around you, and we welcome you with an open heart.

COVID COLLECTIONS is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council and mentored by Annette Loiselle. COVID COLLECTIONS, the short film, produced by SkirtsAfire, has just been chosen to screen at the 35th Annual Edmonton International Film Festival later this fall.
