Lockdown Diaries: Cape Town

When the lockdown began in Cape Town in March 2020, we started asking people from across Cape Town to share regular WhatsApp diaries with us that describe their experiences of Lockdown and its impact upon their communities. We had 70 participants from occupied buildings, informal settlements, townships and suburbs throughout Cape Town participating for over four months. Participants are diverse in terms of their location, age, gender, and race. The hope of the project is to share insights from Lockdown with members of the public, policy makers, and responders to the crisis.
