'Your Stories' COVID-19 Collecting Project

We are collecting digital photos, documents, videos and audio files which document the daily local life of the Glen Eira community during COVID-19.

Why do we want to collect?

COVID-19 is a generation defining challenge for our community, and there will be lots of material collected over the coming months documenting the official response to the crisis. But what is often missing from the historical record are glimpses into the lived experience of individuals and families – things like letters, diary entries, or photographs taken by people just like you.

We hope that the material and stories we capture now

We hope that the material and stories we capture now will help future Glen Eira communities understand what it was like to live through this time.
