LAFAYETTE – The COVID-19 pandemic has made for a very uncertain and extraordinary year – one that will certainly go down in history.

Families and friends have lost and been forced to isolate or quarantine from loved ones. Some jobs have been eliminated at a time when businesses have closed and school children have switched back and forth from in-person to online learning. And frontline workers have continued to risk their lives daily to help and serve others.

Everyone’s COVID-19 story is different and some area art organizers want to hear yours.

The Tippecanoe Arts Federation and the Lafayette Writers' Studio are collaborating to gather and display stories of how the coronavirus pandemic has affected those in the Greater Lafayette community. Adults and children are asked to write and share their pandemic stories in an online form at www.TippecanoeArts.org/Quarantine through Dec. 31, 2020.

Some of the stories will be shown both online and at the Wells Community Cultural Center beginning Jan. 8, as well as at other locations throughout the community, including the West Lafayette Public Library.
