Gabriola Island Pandemic Stories

Over the past 8 months Gabriola Historical and Museum Society (GHMS) has been documenting stories, memories, and accounts of Gabriolans’ everyday experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is funded with the support of the Gabriola Arts Council’s (GAC) Federal grant “Together we Triumph”.

The project has created a free Gabriola Island Pandemic Stories commemorative booklet that each Gabriola household has received in their mailbox. The project also includes a companion website with video interviews, archived Gabriola Sounder articles, and a museum exhibit. The website can be viewed at:
