Description

The onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 raised a new threat to our rural communities,
adding new layers of social isolation and risks to livelihoods. The implications of COVID-19 soon changed the way of life for not only Victorians, but people and nations worldwide. The #SnapshotRuralVic campaign commenced in August, as Victoria was declared to be in a State of Disaster and all Victorians faced six weeks of strict lockdowns. Schools were closed, retail shopfronts empty, people were working from home and mask wearing and social distancing became part of everyday life.

#SnapshotRuralVic provided a silver lining to the dark cloud of COVID-19. By encouraging people to be creative and talk about their everyday experiences, #SnapshotRuralVic saw a diverse range of Victorian’s sharing their stories and surrounds and connecting through photography, videography and storytelling. The campaign ran for 10 weeks, with a different theme each week to provide inspiration for participants to share their personal stories. In addition to the weekly theme, participants were encouraged to share everyday
snippets of their lives, combining to paint a unique picture of Victoria during this time and virtually connecting people in a positive and supportive way.

With metropolitan Melbourne cut off from regional Victoria by the ‘ring of steel’, #SnapshotRuralVic proved to be a welcome escape to life beyond the city.
