Documenting COVID-19

The Kelowna Museums Society is documenting Kelowna’s COVID-19 history. We are collecting objects, artworks, photographs, videos and stories, including personal stories from the community.

Tell us about your experience

We invite you to contribute your thoughts and share your experiences during this historic time. The materials we collect may be used for upcoming exhibitions and as research materials for future generations.

Documentation will continue even after the immediate crisis, as we continue to reflect on the impact COVID-19 has on our community.
