Be part of history - record your memories of COVID-19
Published on 18 June 2020
Kids, how would you like your photograph or drawing showcased at the History Illuminated Festival later this year?
As part of a joint project with The Children’s University of Newcastle, Lake Mac Libraries is collecting children's memories of the COVID-19 lockdown.
Anyone aged 16 and under, living in Lake Macquarie and the surrounding area, is invited to participate.
All you need to do is draw a picture or send a photo of your time at home, and write a short paragraph to tell us about your experience.
Then, scan or take a photo of your work, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 28 August.
Please note: any material submitted may be included on our Lake Macquarie History website as a historical record, and used in future virtual and physical exhibitions.
What should I submit?
Looking for ideas of what to write and draw? Here's some suggestions to help you get started:
- Did you learn a new skill?
- What did you find most memorable?
- What was good about lockdown? What wasn't so good?
- What was your new daily routine like during COVID-19
How to get involved
1) Draw a picture or send a photo of your time at home during the COVID-19 lockdown.
2) Write a short paragraph to tell us about your experience.
3) Scan or take a photo of your work, including the short paragraph, and email at email@example.com by Friday 28 August.
What happens next?
Selected entries will be collated into a slideshow presentation and shown at the History Illuminated Festival later this year.
Entries may also be used as a historical record on the Lake Macquarie website, and used in future digital and physical exhibitions.
