We all know that these are strange times and that they are also tough times for many of us. The same was true of the floods here in 2007, which affected many families and businesses.
However, in these difficult moments in history (for that is what 2020 will become), people will want to look back and reflect on what has been. That in these difficult periods in our history, there can be good things as well as challenges.
We are creating an opportunity for the community to celebrate how people are coping with or even overcoming the challenges thrown at them.
We want to encourage everyone in the Community and in the surrounding villages to participate in recording NOW what is going on to them and Winchcombe during COVID-19.
The Museum invites you all to send in (in digital form) something of what is happening in your life or how COVID -19 has affected you or the Community. Whilst we are running a ‘Lockdown’ Photography Competition, we would also like you all to think about the wider aspects of how it has impacted on your live and the lives of your family and friends and to send us your thoughts and experiences.
Your experiences will be put on record at the museum and saved for posterity as very personal insights into how the current community coped with and overcame this momentous time in our history.
They could be any or all of the following.
A photo of an aspect of Winchcombe with a COVID-19 context.
A picture or short video.
A diary entry.
A recording of a song which you or someone you know have composed.
Recounting an incident which you have experienced.
An interview with a loved one or someone from Winchcombe.
A photo of something which you or a member of the family have made.
In recording or creating what you propose to send, please ensure that you observe all then current Govt. guidelines on COVID-19
Please send your item(s) to Winchcombe Museum at email@example.com and we will review them for possible inclusion in an exhibition to commemorate COVID-19 some time in the future.
Chosen experiences will also be put on record at the museum and saved for posterity in a ‘time capsule’ as very personal insights into how the current community coped with and overcame this momentous time in our history.
