In these strange and curious times, we need culture more than ever: a form of escapism and a chance for our brains to absorb something other than the situation we are in. Even from our sofas and kitchen tables, we can use culture to expand our minds and thinking. Not only that, the arts scene is rapidly recording this era of our lives, with The Museum of London is collecting items so future generations can learn more about this period, and the V&A has a editorial project called Pandemic Objects. Pandemic Objects is an editorial project that compiles and reflects on objects that have taken on new meaning and purpose during the coronavirus outbreak. I am sure the theatre and dance sectors will also respond with their interpretations of the covid-19 pandemic too, and strangely, I am interested to see how it will be shown.
I’ve managed to catch some culture, I loved Jane Eyre from The National, and Metamorphosis from the Royal Opera House was superb. Having seen a David Hockney at the Tate Britain a few years ago, I loved the documentary on their Youtube channel, a really in-depth interview with the remarkable man. I always donate whenever I watch something, the chance to see these world-class productions is simply brilliant, and I am desperate to see the arts scene not only survive, but thrive post pandemic and lockdown.
Now, over to you!
