Stories from the Pandemic

7 Jun 2022

Lab4Living collaborates with social enterprise Opus Independents, Sheffield City Council, Sheffield City Archives and Compassionate Sheffield to mark the impact of the pandemic in Sheffield.

Stories From The Pandemic is a new project that is part of Sheffield’s Covid-19 memorial tribute plans. Delivered by social enterprise Opus Independents in partnership with Sheffield City Council, Sheffield City Archives, Compassionate Sheffield and Lab4Living (Michael Tan and Helen Fisher), the project aims to gather stories from the people of Sheffield to inform and strengthen the city’s memorial plans.

Contributions, drawn from all walks of life, will form a lasting testimony and historical record of the pandemic’s impact from the perspective of individuals and the communities they live in. The perspective and experience of individuals will inform plans for community memorials and a memorial statue in the city centre.

To make sure this is rooted in the experiences of the people of Sheffield, we’d like to encourage you to submit your story.

Let’s celebrate the small acts of kindness, support positive change and remember those we have lost.

Be part of history. Be part of Sheffield’s story.
