About the My Dearest Friends Project:

DisArt and artist Oaklee Thiele began the My Dearest Friends Project by collecting stories from the disability community confronted with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Through podcast interviews, personal submissions illustrated by Thiele, the project unites the global disabled community while documenting this moment in history and preserving our culture.
