Contemporary Collecting - COVID 19 YORK

Help our collection initiative!

It would be hard to find anyone in York who has not been affected in some way by the COVID 19 emergency.

We want to capture this historic moment with all its challenges, reflective moments, fears, strains, humour, absurd moments and creative endeavours.

We want to make sure that your voice is captured and collect as many everyday experiences as possible.

Send us your story, photos or video of your experiences with COVID 19.
