Northland Life in Lockdown

Send us your Stories

We Want to Collect Your Lockdown Stories for our collections!

At the Museum @Te Ahu we want to capture stories of your time in lockdown in Northland as a community record of COVID19 a major worldwide event in history.

What items, objects and stories will represent our time in lockdown?

What will kids be asking us about this experience in 30 years time?

We want to hear about your time in lockdown:

  • How are you feeling?
  • What are you doing?
  • What are you witnessing around the country/world?

Please tell us your story, good or bad; funny or sad, we want to represent everyone's experience, whether you are young, old or in between. You can tell it however you like – for example a written diary, audio/video recordings, an art work, song, poetry etc. and are welcome to identify yourself or to remain anonymous if you prefer.

You can submit your stories to us at or please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like further information on the project.

Any material offered to the Museum at Te Ahu Collection as part of this project will need to go through our usual formal acquisition process before it is accepted into the Collection.
