Lucy Mathews Heegaard: I combine written and spoken word with photographs, sounds, music, and video to create stories about memory, identity, interdependence, and belonging. My current works in progress include: a memoir project about my childhood growing up on the University of Alabama campus while my father was president there, amidst student unrest over racial injustices and the Vietnam war; and a collective storytelling project combining the individual experiences of nurses who have been on the frontlines of Covid care during the pandemic. For 2020-2021, I am serving as Artist-in-Residence for Audre, a program to provide spiritual care to women with cancer.
