Limerick Museum and the People’s Museum of Limerick have joined forces to establish an exciting and innovative project on Limerick’s experience of the Covid-19 pandemic. The two museums want the people of Limerick both at home and abroad to send them stories and pictures about their response to the crisis. These will be used in a joint exhibition to be held by both museums when things get back to normal.
Dr Matthew Potter, Curator of Limerick Museum and Dr Rose Anne White, Curator of the People’s Museum said:
“The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest and most challenging crisis since World War II, both in Ireland and worldwide. However, it has been wonderful to see how people and communities have responded, especially here in Limerick. We are saying to Limerick people at home and abroad in the global Limerick diaspora: tell us how you have coped. We want to hear your stories and see your pictures of life during the present Covid 19 crisis.”
Please send stories, photos, and drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
