About this Event

One year after the World Health Organisation declared Covid-19 a pandemic, StoryLab Research at Anglia Ruskin University presented their creative collaboration with some of the health care professionals (HCPs) who have been on the frontline these past 12 months.

StoryLab showed excerpts of their latest documentary film project which grew out of “The Frontline” archive started in April 2020 as a tool to document and preserve the experiences of HCPs.

Listen to some of StoryLab’s HCP collaborators on the film and find out why they chose to document their professional and personal experiences of the pandemic through various creative media (photography, text, artwork).

The event discussed how creative expression helped HCPs find meaning in their experiences and the experiences of their peers, and how their creative work offered the public a deeper insight into the pandemic.
