History is created every day. One of our jobs at Auckland Museum is to look at what is happening around us in the present day and to collect and preserve objects, photographs and documents that will help us tell the story of “now” in the future.
The Covid-19 pandemic, which has changed all our lives, is a defining moment of our time. Auckland Museum has collected material to document this event and its impact. Our focus was to collect stories of this pandemic from Auckland and the surrounding regions, including photographs objects, arts and crafts, and material like posters and signs.
Submissions to contribute material for consideration to our collection closed on Saturday 23 May.
