The Institute for Cultural Practices is proud to present ‘The New Normal?: Voices of the COVID-19 Pandemic’, a pop-up exhibition in collaboration with NHS Voices of Covid-19 and The University of Manchester’s Museum of Medicine and Health.

The free entry exhibition explores a wide variety of experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic and will be on display at Manchester Central Library for one day only, on Thursday 9th December 2021, 10.30am-6pm.

From community to inequalities, from the changes to the sense of touch and the impact on mental health to the public perception of the NHS during the pandemic, the exhibition reflects on Covid-19 experiences, as described by nurses, virologists, patients, vulnerable people shielding at home and others.

The exhibition has been curated by a team of postgraduate students studying Art Gallery & Museum Studies at The University of Manchester. The exhibition draws on oral histories collected by the NHS Voices of Covid-19 project and objects loaned from the Museum of Medicine and Health to shine a light on the many different experiences of the pandemic.
