Covid- 19Reflection

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on all of us, transforming the way we live, work and socialise. Residents and communities are joining together to reflect on this time and preserve their thoughts for future generations in a borough-wide project called COVID-19 Reflections. 

Photographer and filmmaker Jason Lock has had the unique opportunity to explore every strand of the Covid-19 Reflections programme over the past few months. He has been documenting the artists and the communities involved with Reflections, producing films that record and communicate the projects. Here he shares his trailer for the films and his own reflections on his time making them.


Artists and photographers are working with communities across the borough to capture their experiences of the pandemic in four themes.


Open Eye Gallery has been commissioned to lead this photography project, with photographers Ciara Leeming, Sam Ivin and Tadgh Devlin currently working with groups whose stories are seldom heard.


Theatre company Filament are working with Vivo service users and carers to record their experiences of living through the COVID-19 pandemic.


Artist Jayne Lawless is working with residents and a foodbank based at Westminster Community Centre, in Ellesmere Port. Her project aims to look at how the pandemic has altered society and its structures.


New trees have been planted in six areas of the borough to give residents space to reflect on their own experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic. Artists are working with communities on six projects linked to these planting areas.
