Arts & Culture at your fingertips
20th March 2020
I’m sure by now you’ve all heard that ‘staying in’ is the new ‘going out’ and that lots of us are already social distancing or self-isolating. Many children are now learning from home with their families whilst schools will continue to teach the children of our wonderful keyworkers, who keep the country moving and look after us all.
So, what do we do during this ‘new normal’? How long will it last? We don’t know.
What we do know is that there are loads of incredible digital resources at our fingertips that can surprise, delight and inspire us all. We also know that the technology is there to enable us to connect remotely through the amazing World Wide Web. So, even though our current events have been postponed, we’re looking at ways to help people enjoy the time spent alone as well as finding ways to reach out through digital means and stay connected with other people in creative ways.
For the moment, we’re curating content from the best of the web and we’re also exploring working with artists to make our own. So, watch this space…
Have a look at our suggestions below (this is a living page and will be regularly updated, so keep checking back) and if you have any ideas for this blog that you think other people would like, please send them to Marian, our impromptu Digital Curator at firstname.lastname@example.org
