The National Museum is inviting Australians to share their experiences, stories, reflections and images of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bridging the Distance — Sharing our COVID-19 Pandemic Experiences is a national conversation about an event which is already a defining moment in our nation’s history.

Share your story on our Bridging the Distance Facebook page.

You can also join the conversation by:

  • emailing curator@nma.gov.au
  • adding a comment below
  • writing to Curator, National Museum, GPO Box 1901, Canberra, ACT, 2601

The Museum will hold the shared content as a record of these unprecedented times and will also look to develop an exhibition based on the stories it contains.

Bridging the Distance is part of a wider Museum initiative to take its collection into people’s homes while the Museum’s doors are closed due to the pandemic.
