A new project by The Harris is aiming to record Prestonians’ thoughts on what life is like during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Harris is collecting video submissions of people talking about their experiences for its Memory Maker project, so historians of the future can study them.

A spokesperson for The Harris said: “We are living through a historical event right now – something that will be talked about for decades to come – and we need your help to record it for the future.

“We’d like you to send us a video of yourself talking about your experiences of what life is like social distancing in Preston at this strange time.

“These could be added to the Harris collection for the historians of the future to study and we hope to share a selection of them on our website either individually or edited together as part of a longer film.”

The Harris is asking participants to include thoughts about how life has changed, what they are grateful for, and what they are most looking forward to when normality resumes.
