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.
