Our stories

Here are the themes you have chosen to reflect your stories.

Across Australia

We are making a record of this moment.

You have shared how you have adapted and what is important to you,
locally and globally.

All ages

Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, Baby Boomers and beyond, every age has a story to tell.


Australia’s going through some big changes and we’d love your help to make a record of life in this moment.

Tell us your story of Covid-19 or the 2019–20 bushfires. Share what worries you or gives you hope. Show us what you miss or how you’ve adapted.

Sharing your story — big or small, whatever you feel — captures a moment in time for all of us, to keep for future generations. It’s the story of this moment and it’s as precious as it is uniquely ours.
