On March 19, 2020 Queens World became the first festival in the world to jump on line in response to the pandemic. Over the next 24 months, our Resilience was tested again and again. Now two years later, we have another global crisis. We all need good news.
We have listened to community members and recorded their thoughts about Hope and Resilience for a project we call The Listening Tour. There are nine videos completed with more in the pipeline.
When finished, the videos will be archived in the Queens Memory Project, a program of the Queens Public Library.
On March 19, we invite you to a gathering to share these messages of Hope on the anniversary of the day we connected with a world that was suddenly shut down.
It is time to listen. Let’s start with members in our own community.
