Tell your stories to Council

Monday 4 May 2020

Council's Library and History Services is collating a COVID-19 community archive and is seeking stories, anecdotes, artworks and images from Inner West citizens. 

Right now, the community is experiencing an extraordinary occurrence. Contemporary accounts by everyday people will help future historians make sense of this major life event.

The archive will act as a 'snapshot' of the Inner West in lockdown - what it was like, how our world changed and how people were affected.

The community archive wants to hear from singles, families, young people, businesses and artists about:

⦁ What they are doing
⦁ What they are feeling
⦁ What they are missing

The archive will become part of the permanent collection at Inner West Council's Local Studies Collection and help tell our stories to future generations, who will use the contents to understand how the community dealt with the pandemic.

To find out how to contribute, and for inspiration on how to begin, what to write about, what to take photos of, go to
