Join us on Thursday, 30 September, from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm as we explore the idea of Collecting Covid-19 with the Natasha McEnroe, Keeper of Medicine at the Wellcome Galleries in the Science Museum.

Through its rapid spread, global reach and capacity to overwhelm healthcare systems, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a public health crisis that impacts on all our lives. The pandemic has brought with it enormous social change, the repercussions of which will be felt for years. It has seen the introduction of strict public health controls and placed enormous demands on key workers, but it has also galvanised the international scientific and medical communities in the fight against it. The Science Museum Group cares for one of the world’s most significant collections of science, technology, engineering and medicine.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic their curators are actively, and sensitively, researching stories and identifying objects to collect on the nation’s behalf. Join us for the fascinating conversation as we ask the questions about what Collecting Covid-19 looks like!

You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the ‘chat’ function at the end of the conversation.
