Creativity vs. COVID: Ending the Pandemic for Good

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers have been working to develop tests, treatments, and vaccines to better protect us and ease the public health crisis. An international collective of university students, artists, and access to medicine advocates has also been working to make sure those treatments are available to everyone, no matter where they live or how much money they have.

This exhibit shares creative work from the Free the Vaccine for Covid-19 collective, from handmade gifts to parody music videos. It introduces audiences to key issues that limit access to medicine and provides robust methods anyone can use to advocate for change from anywhere, especially at this time of social distancing. 

The virtual exhibition will take place February 1st through April 16th. To view the virtual exhibition, please click this link.
