This is an exhibition that provides an immersive experience of individual accounts of the Covid-19 lockdown from the perspective of Edinburgh and Lothian residents.

Residents sharing their accounts include key workers, caregivers, school pupils, those with disabilities, and those experiencing homelessness. Fully captioned videos on six screens will be accompanied by three personal listening stations and an interactive touchscreen kiosk to explore at your own pace. Visitors can sign up to share their own memories. Young people can learn about social science research and earn a Young Researcher certificate. Art supplies will be on hand for children to express themselves creatively.
