BY CAPTURING THE INTIMATE IMAGES AND STORIES
WE WILL HEAL
Together We Will Heal is a non-profit cultural arts project designed to capture the intimate images and stories of some of the heroes and casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic. By memorializing the heroic acts of extraordinary men and women who served all of us on the front lines in the on-going battle against the virus and those among us who suffered great loss, Together We Will Heal intends to stimulate an elevate the narrative regarding the importance of kindness, compassion and perseverance.
Founded by Diane Canney, a former federal government worker and small business owner, Together We Will Heal is built upon the premise that the arts in general – and specifically this kind of real and deeply personal artistic medium – unites people, bringing them closer to one another around a shared emotional experience. In some ways similar to the events set in motion by the 9/11 attacks and in many other ways profoundly more devastating, the COVID-19 pandemic has and continues to scar us. This reality, when confronted with the power of hope and enveloped by the heroic, selfless acts of kindness and dedication of nurses, doctors, truck drivers, grocery store workers, teachers and others on the frontline through art, brings us together. This is the mission to which Together We Will Heal is committed.
