Oldham's Lockdown Museum - Be part of it...

Oldham’s Lockdown Museum is a new digital project to collect a snapshot of what life is like in our local area during the Covid-19 pandemic.

There is a saying: ‘Change is the only visible sign of life’ and what changes we’ve gone through.

Gallery Oldham is looking for objects, text and images that tell the story of life in lockdown so that we can share them with future generations.

Have you bought or made something unusual? What object sums up the changing world outside or the unchanging reality of staying at home?

Sometimes it is the most ordinary object that tells the most amazing story.

We’d love to share your experiences and ideas, and see pictures (photographs or drawings/paintings) of the objects that sum them up, whatever they are.

Or if you have some writing you would like to share, a poem, letter or social media posts we would love to accept them in to the Lockdown Museum too.

Be part of preserving history for future generations to discover by sending us your contribution now.
