Do you have the lockdown blues? This hour-long online workshop is about connection and catharsis through shared creativity. Dr Fred Cooper from the Wellcome Centre will talk briefly about the Beacon project on loneliness, show you some things that other people have been making, drawing, writing (or singing!) during Covid-19, and lend you some inspiration to express yourself your way. Come prepared to create something, even if you never show anybody!
Research Fellow | Wellcome Centre for Cultures + Environments |University of Exeter
