Who stepped up during Covid? How did they do it? Who created opportunity? COVID’s waves temporarily devastated entire sectors around the globe, while nationalism and a rise in authoritarianism clashed with movements to undo racism and systemic inequities. The stories that will be remembered will be who made a positive difference.  

Join Leonie Hodkevitch, writer and University lecturer in Vienna/Austria and Thessaloniki/Greece, and Dee Boyle-Clapp, artist and docent at UMass Amherst, for a miniature European-American tour of how different locales addressed the pandemic through the role of arts in helping people cope, come together, resist, and become resilient.
