As the keeper of the state’s stories, the State Library of South Australia is committed to including voices and experiences of children and young people. You and the learners you work with are invited to take part in a State Library initiative, COVID-19 Through Young Eyes.

About the project

This project invites children and young people across the state to reflect on and create a response that shares their personal experiences during COVID-19. Stories will be published digitally through the State Library’s flickr presence, a safe, moderated space created for children and young people, to share their stories with each other and the broader community.

Two guiding questions frame this project and provide scope for children and young people to respond in many ways:

  1. When you look back on this time in the future what will you remember most? OR
  2. When people of the future look back on this event, what would you want them to know about your life during COVID-19?

Responses might be recorded on paper such as poems, stories, drawings or a painting with an explanation attached, or a short video such as an interview, meme or stop motion animation.
