HOW TO GET INVOLVED
‘Life in Isolation’ is a live public journal and social movement that documents real stories, from real people, how we adapt, develop, and and overcome the obstacles we face, to celebrate the true spirit across the nation as we learn to cope with a new way of living through COVID-19.
Never before have we faced such a transformational way of life. As British Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan once said in 1957: Britons 'have never had it so good' and now we’re being asked to do without, stay indoors, socially distance ourselves from friends and relatives and put our lives and businesses on hold.
This is the ultimate leveler for humankind; so how are we really going to cope?
As well as the practical and the topical, we want to be able to show the human side to living with COVID-19. This is a community where people will be able to share stories that lift our spirits and inspire through words and doodles.
We want people to showcase the positive and the good will as well as the humorous (counteracting the media hysteria), whilst also providing interesting, entertaining, and relatable stories, to provide comfort and ensure that the true spirit of our nation and the world prevails.
This is a platform for contemplation, reflection, and discussions on the challenges and how we adapt to the future through COVID-19.
‘Life in Isolation’ aims to document real stories, from real people, how we adapt, develop, and how we overcome the obstacles we face when living in isolation, whilst celebrating the true human spirit across the nation as we learn to cope with a new way of living.
