Queen's 2020
We are trying to record the experiences of Queen’s members during this strange year, and would like to invite you to take part.

Your contribution to ‘Queen’s 2020’ might take the form of photographs, a written piece (as a guide, you may like to aim for around 500 words), a video, an audio recording, a cartoon or a piece of art. It might tell us something about your experiences of lockdown (1 or 2…) or self-isolation, of a unique Freshers’ Week or virtual matriculation, how your work or studies have changed, or anything else at all that feels worth sharing.

We’d love to hear from you – whether you’re a member of the JCR, MCR, SCR or staff – so that we can share perspectives from across the whole of our community.


The aim is to build an online exhibition (which can perhaps also become a real-life exhibition in the future), share items via our social media, and to record our experiences of living through this historic time for our Archive. Please note therefore that by submitting anything to the Queen’s 2020 project you are giving us permission to use your submission in these ways, and to add it to the College Archive. You should only submit items of which you are the author or creator, and only include information that you are happy to be made public. Your personal information will be kept securely, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018. (A copy of the relevant Privacy Policy and Record of Processing Activity is available online.)

Please send anything electronic to or drop off anything physical at the Lodge for the Library pigeon hole.
