UNITED in Hammersmith & Fulham has partnered with Hammersmith & Fulham Archives to document the experience of the coronavirus pandemic, for those who usually live, work and play in our borough. All submissions will be archived and preserved permanently as a community memory of this unprecedented period.

We are seeking documentation, including but not limited to:

  • Selfies with personal stories – submitted online
  • Photographs of the neighbourhood, for example:
    • Children’s rainbows
    • Shop notices
    • Empty streets
    • Community signs
    • Your workplace
  • Artwork, poetry or writings you’ve produced

Want to submit your selfie and story online?

Simply complete the form below and you’ll be featured online. This is an equal platform to be seen and heard, and your personal story matters as much as the next person. If you prefer to email, we will need to give you a consent form too – contact us at team@unitedhf.org.

Got a hard copy or anything else digital to share?

LBHF Archives can accept hard-copy contributions in any format for the permanent archive, but prefer (or will convert records to) the following electronic formats: text as pdf; images as jpeg or tiff; audio as WAV or MP3/4; video/film in your preferred format; links of blogs and web pages. Since we need to wait some time before being able to safely collect post, please hold on to it for now and email us first so we know what you’re planning to send through – you can do this by contacting archives@lbhf.gov.uk.

Copyright and Terms of Deposit

All submissions are considered a “gift” to LBHF Archives. Contributors of hard copies will be required to fill out a deposit form permitting use of copyright material for future public research and other uses which the contributor is be able to specify or limit. Unless the contributor states otherwise, documents will be anonymised.
