Tell us your stories for Lockdown Life MK!
At Living Archive MK we believe that everyone has a story to tell. So what’s your lockdown story? We’d like to hear it, and we’d like to invite you to take part in our latest project, Lockdown Life MK, which will create a COVID-19 archive documenting the lives of MK’s citizens at this time.
We are all living through a unique moment in history and it’s really important that people’s experiences are valued, preserved and shared to create a valuable archive resource for local people and future researchers. Eventually, the interviews will be used to inform other creative works, such as short films, exhibitions, drama pieces, books or songs to be shared with Milton Keynes residents and the wider online community.
We want to hear about your experiences – are you still working? Have you been furloughed? – and we will be conducting interviews to find out how COVID-19 has affected you. Calling all teachers, doctors, nurses, shop workers, delivery drivers, homeschoolers, homeworkers, exam-sitters, school leavers, shielders – please share how your life has changed.
But how can we create this record whilst keeping safe? Why, we’ll be recording the interviews on Zoom, of course!
If you are interested in taking part in Lockdown Life MK and giving us a Zoom interview please email firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance and we will let you have more details. Please include a brief description of your experiences during lockdown in your email.
This work has been supported by funding from MK Community Foundation.
