FACTORY COVID19 UPDATE: During lockdown in spring/summer 2020 we organised online meets, where we had the opportunity to come together and chat informally about topics around current challenges for our Creative Communities. In the era of Covid19, we and our creative sectors have specific challenges when wanting to connect with audiences, creatives, customers, networks and each other. Each meet had a speaker, and there were opportunities to share experiences and network within our communities. We collated a list of resources from those meetings that creative professionals in our regions might find useful.
