There are no words for the way in which the Arts have been stamped on during 2020. Right from the very start of Lockdowns, all the way to the recent remarks about how we should be turning our efforts to new skills and new career ventures.
The ironic thing amongst it all is that, despite not being allowed to be on stage each night, in the studio creating everyday or expressing our talents in the normal ways in which we did post 2020; as artistic, creative beings, we already have the discipline and initiative to still thrive during a world lockdown. We invented new ways in which we could share our art, stay connected as a community, and more than any other industry- we will come out the other side of 2020 with even more skills under our belt, and more fuel to our artistry.

Below I have shared my top 5 self care tips to keep supporting and looking after yourself during the uncertainty of these testing times.
