In brief

The Relationships Project and Local Area Coordination Network have teamed up to surface, share and celebrate stories of lockdown from all across the country. How have your relationships changed through Covid? What’s the Spirit you want to bottle to guide your way forward? Wherever you are and whoever you are, we want to hear your story. Together, we can inspire a conversation about how we can build back better, stronger and more connected. 

The power of a story 

The stories we tell now about our response to Covid-19 will shape how we look back on this time, and how we move forward as a society. 

  • How do you want to remember this time? 
  • What changes do you want to sustain? 
  • What’s the spirit you want to bottle to guide your way forward? 
Share your story of lockdown and join a community of story sharers across the country in celebrating the power of relationships and inspiring a conversation about how we can build back better, stronger and more connected. 

Get involved

You don’t need to be an experienced storyteller to take part. Don’t worry about spelling, grammar or being the next JK Rowling – we want to hear about your experience of lockdown in your voice and in whichever format works best for you. 

You might want to write your story, to video it, audio record it, draw it, tell it alone, tell it in pairs. Choose the format that works best for you and get sharing! 

Populating the map

We’re building an interactive map to showcase and celebrate stories of lockdown from across the UK. In early 2021 we’ll be inviting storytellers and local decision makers to come together to draw out lessons and shape a better, more connected society post-Covid. 

Will you join us?
