LAW AND CREATIVITY IN A PANDEMIC: A TIME OF REMARKABLE FLOURISHING
(18:00 - 19:00)
A panel of artists and poets discuss how lockdown restrictions proved to be a unique source of creative inspiration and connection.
How did the Covid-19 lockdowns and other restrictions prove to be such a potent and compelling source of creative inspiration? Law and legal rules may not be an obvious motivator for artists and poets in normal times, but this changed when the order to 'stay at home' began to impact all aspects of life.
This free ticketed public panel discussion event brings together three artists (an artistic director and two poets), each with a unique experience to share of turning a crisis into an unprecedented opportunity for inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to find solace, hope and positivity in new acts of creativity.
The event looks back at the coronavirus pandemic as a rare and unusual meeting between law and the imagination: a time of isolation, of feeling caged, and for many sadly a time of loss. But also a time of remarkable flourishing.
