Culture Perth & Kinross Covid-19 Collecting Project

The coronavirus pandemic is having an enormous impact on every aspect of our lives. Culture Perth & Kinross (CPK) is the charitable trust that looks after the region’s Museums, Archives and Libraries and are creating a Covid-19 Collection which reflects how people, organisations, businesses and communities across Perth & Kinross are affected by the pandemic. The collection will become a resource for current and future generations to understand the impact of Coronavirus and learn from our experiences.

Do you have anything you could offer to the collection? The list below is not extensive, but it should give you a good idea about what sort of items they are looking for.

  • Diaries and correspondence
  • Photographs, film and sound recordings
  • Creative and artistic responses
  • Leaflets and posters
  • Temporary signs and notices
  • Equipment and other objects

CPK are interested in both physical documents or objects, and digital information and photographs.

If you have any items or digital files you wish to offer,  or any questions, please email Covid19Collecting@culturepk.org.uk with details.  A member of the Collections Team will respond to your email. All offers are appreciated but it will not be possible to accept all items.

There is also a short survey to find out how the pandemic is affecting our everyday lives. If you wish to participate you can access it at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CPK-COVID-19.
