Cardiff in Lockdown

Help us to capture a snapshot of life in Cardiff during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We are collecting photographs to reflect how peoples’ lives have changed during this extraordinary time. 

It’s important that we keep a record of this period in history, so future generations can learn about the pandemic and its impact on our city and its people. 

We are looking for images that show how your life in Cardiff has changed; your new daily routines, new challenges, or the small things that you’ve come to appreciate.
