During the current crisis, creative professionals are finding solutions to aid communities in their moment of need. Creative Industries Federation are going to be sharing the stories they find on their social media channels to spread some cheer - to be featured, tag them and the Culture Diary in your post and use the hashtag #creatingpositivity!
Here are a few favourites from CIF this week:
- The team who created the costumes for TV series His Dark Materials are using their time and skills to sew scrubs for medical staff working to fight COVID-19.
- Sarabande, the Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation, is sharing #SarabandeSessions ever yday at 5 pm featuring industry leaders from the worlds of art, fashion, film and jewelry.
- Make sure to check out ScreenSkills online training courses covering the digital, diversity, legal and business, people skills, productions, scripting and technical aspects of TV and film. A great way to brush up your skills whilst in lockdown.
