Using photographs, interviews and new writing, this exhibition shares the stories and experiences of the pandemic through the eyes of the East Renfrewshire community.
The Covid pandemic will shape and impact our society for many years to come. As part of Scotland's Year of Stories 2022, the project Beyond 2020: Community Reflections invited people from across East Renfrewshire to share their stories of this remarkable point in time.
A team of volunteers received professional oral history training and went on to record the experiences of over 40 people from all walks of life. In addition, participants at creative writing workshops produced new writing which reflected their own experiences.
The interviews and creative writing will be archived permanently in the East Renfrewshire Heritage Collection leaving a shared community legacy for future generations.
This touring exhibition invites you to share these stories, as told or written by members of the East Renfrewshire Community. Each story has been brought to life through a stunning photographic portrait by Wes Kingston.
