One great thing to pop out of Lockdown is the creativity that has reconfigured the internet to being a friend, not simply something that keeps us busy.
And I wonder too, if it will last when we get our freedom back! (I hope so).
Hear work from 10 writers from all corners of the globe (US, NZ, EU) sharing their reflections on lockdown.
If you have had enough of lockdown I promise the writing and the actors will transport you from head to toe! Original Event listing is >> here
But watch without delay below –
I hope the 10 pieces of writing enlighten or enliven the senses. More importantly I hope this lockdown is keeping you and your loved ones safe.
