Zip Code Memory Project Gathering for COVID

Sunday, December 5, 2021
4 PM - 5 PM

Join the participants of the Zip Code Memory Project for a public gathering to acknowledge, mourn, and pay tribute to the losses of COVID 19 in a healing community ritual. The event will begin in front of the Peace Fountain, and end on the Cathedral's West Front Stairs. All are invited to join in a candlelit acknowledgement of the trauma of the past two years, and to tap into powerful resources of art and community mutual support.

The Zip Code Memory Project seeks to find reparative ways to memorialize the devastating losses resulting from the Coronavirus pandemic while also acknowledging its radically differential effects on Upper New York City neighborhoods. Working across the zip codes of Harlem, Washington Heights and the South Bronx, we are gathering with local community, arts and academic organizations to imagine how the losses of the pandemic can be acknowledged, mourned, and healed, and how the mutual aid, care and repair they have occasioned can be honored.
