COVID-19 Contemporary Collecting

COVID-19 Contemporary Collecting

Contemporary collecting is defined as the collecting of objects, stories and material culture that reflect the recent past and what is happening today. 

The museum is preparing to tell the story of the COVID-19 pandemic through the voices of anaesthetists, intensivists and patients, and by collecting anaesthetic equipment which was critical to patient care and safety. Read about the project and how to get involved.
