Collecting COVID: Contemporary collecting at WA Museum


What did the WA Museum do when our State, and our world, rapidly changed right before our very eyes?

What is the Museum collecting to record Western Australia’s response to the pandemic and the impact COVID-19 has had on our state?

What will future generations want to see and know?

Join Catherine as she discusses the ways in which the Museum has gone about ‘collecting COVID’ and see the first exhibition produced from this project.
