VOLUNTARY ARTS - DAILY ONLINE GATHERINGS

VOLUNTARY ARTS - DAILY ONLINE GATHERINGS FOR ANYONE INVOLVED IN ART, CULTURE AND CREATIVITY DURING THESE CHALLENGING TIMES.

At the moment there are a lot of people feeling isolated, working from home, with events and meetings being cancelled, who might welcome the chance to speak to someone else at this difficult and worrying time. Voluntary Arts has nearly 30 years experience of remote working, working at home and supporting a distributed network of staff, freelancers and volunteers.


On Tuesday 17 March, Voluntary Arts launched #CreativeNetwork - a daily online get-together open to anyone involved in arts, culture and creativity who would welcome the opportunity to talk to others about dealing with the current situation, the challenges of working from home and what we can do together to make the most of difficult circumstances.

Each weekday morning we meet each other via Zoom between 9:30am and 10:30am.
