In these uncertain times people are using their initiative and creativity to make the long days at home seem a little shorter and a little more fun! We at Galway City Museum would like to document some of these activities and build an exhibition in the future featuring your experiences during the 2020 pandemic.

Calling all children and adults – Let us know what you have been up to! Please send us your photos, drawings or videos showing us what you have baked/made/designed/planted and what has entertained you during these past weeks (this could include somebody making you dig the garden…).

Please send images with a 50 word description, your name and the area you live in to our email address museum@galwaycity.ie with the subject heading #mycovidcreativity

You can also share your activity with the hashtag #mycovidcreativity on Facebook or Instagram.

Many thanks to Sally McHugh from Corotin, Co.Galway for sending us a postcard! "I have been busy making art thanks to these free postcards from An Post! I've been experimenting with different art forms and then sending them to friends and family.
ART has been a wonderful de-stresser!
This card is a mixture of printing and collage, made from materials around the house - poster paints, rose foliage and newsprint"
Galway City Museum look forward to seeing more of the brilliant initiative & creativity shown by people in Galway during the #COVIDー19 pandemic. Send photos, drawings or videos showing what you have baked/made/planted/designed to museum@galwaycity.ie.

Thank you to Michelle Greaves for the link to her new blog with some fabulous photographs taken over the last few months. "During the 2 km restriction I created a photography project called "Looking Out". During this global pandemic life continues behind windows. In this project "Looking Out" we are trying to capture what life is like looking out into a seemingly abandoned outside world." Link to the blog which has more details: http://www.wonkyeye.ie/wonky-eye-blogger.

Thank you to Anthony Walsh from Knocknacarra for sharing his wonderful painting. Here's what he had to say: "This is my painting of my life whilst isolating at home during the Covid-19 virus.
As I could not go to school or have any playdates I had my pets for company.
Throughout the 2020 lockdown I wore a protective face mask.
As nobody said “howya” anymore, I painted “howya” on my mask!"

Well done to Oisin and Naoise Flynn, ages 10 and 7 from Doughiska, Galway for making this amazing robot during the lockdown. Thanks for sharing guys! Here's what they had to say: "Introducing ‘GRETA LOCKDOWN’, our environmentally friendly robot. She is entirely made up of household waste packaging which was due for landfill until we saw the opportunity to up-cycle our waste into something fun and beautiful. After all who doesn’t want to live with a friendly personal robot. We have also been very busy building Code, Lego and Stop Motion Animations throughout the Lockdown." Galway City Museum look forward to seeing more of the brilliant inititiative & creativity shown by people in Galway during the #COVIDー19 pandemic. Send photos, drawings or videos showing what you have baked/ made/ planted/ designed to museum@galwaycity.ie
