#Kingstoniso Project

Capturing local experiences of COVID-19 for the Kingston Local History collection

You are invited to help us capture this unprecedented moment in history through the #Kingstoniso project. 

We are living through History. This is a once-in-a-century event that we would like to document for the future. 

Share your photographs, videos, writings or artwork that capture the images and experiences of the Kingston community during COVID-19 isolation.

Show us how you’re spending your time at home – you might be working, home schooling, taking up a new hobby, or connecting with family & friends online.

You can also capture scenes from around your neighbourhood as you exercise at the local park or head to the shops.

Let us share together our moments ­-­­ both the highs and the lows ­­- that capture this unique time in history. 

Together we can create a living history that can be shared for decades to come through the Kingston Local History collection. 

Simply share on your social media* using #Kingstoniso or email us direct at
