The Creative Collective Memory Arts Project comprised of a series of workshops undertaken during 2022. The workshops were led by talented local artists who guided participants through a creative process capturing the lived experience of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The project allowed the community to come together and create and celebrate unique stories and experiences while building a memory bank for future generations.

A selection of original and photographed works from the workshop series is currently on a travelling exhibition and can be viewed at the following Geelong Regional Libraries' branches:
