Did you catch Creative Xchange?
Not all of us like being dependent on other people, but the cliché of clichés that says “no man is an island,” as the last weeks have shown us, holds true. Not all of us are waiting on donations, per se, but we have relied on other people to keep some level of sanity in the daily routines of our enhanced community quarantine.
It might be a text message to satiate boredom, or checking in with family just to see how they’re doing, sharing a screen with a significant other so you can watch a film together—whatever the adjustment, it’s clear we need each other to keep our mental health in check and our anxiety levels as stable as possible.

And this was the founding idea behind Creative Xchange, a series of live Zoom sessions with four speakers, each one tackling the different facets of Fashion & Design, Film & Video Content, Creativity In Uncertainty and Managing Stress & Anxiety. We were in for some inspiration, camaraderie and some tricks to tuck up our own sleeves.
