Project overview

A Space Between Us is a collection of oral, photographic and video stories collected from Black and Brown people that reveal how underserved communities deal with the threat of the COVID-19 virus. While acknowledging the need to physically isolate from each other and observe harm reduction protocols, the stories show how residents grapple with the demands of everyday life and still find ways to remain connected to loved ones and community. These stories serve as a way to connect people during a time of physical distance, celebrate our resiliency, while illustrating how to stay safe. Their stories are told through photographs, video, and audio recordings, and are broadly distributed through an interactive website, a zine distributed in seven newspaper stands placed in San Bernardino County, and short films screened at various locations.
