University project to create archive of creative responses to lockdown

Press/Media: Research


Academics at Aberdeen University are hoping to create an archive preserving the creative ways people have responded to lockdown.

For the past month, people have plastered colourful images of rainbows to their windows to cheer up passersby, created eye-catching chalk drawings and even penned poems and songs about the situation.

The university’s Elphinstone Institute has now launched the Lockdown Lore Collection Project to offer future generations an insight into everyday life during the pandemic.
