Lockdown Lowdown

With many people experiencing furlough and reduced work in the creative industry in 2020, it was important to amplify the voices of creative professionals during this difficult period, as well as provide advice, tips and support to the community and beyond.

In collaboration with The Guardian, Pocc commissioned ten Pocc contributors to amplify perspectives, stories and experiences on living, working and surviving lockdown. Pocc curated the questions and themes for the articles, before opening the opportunity out wide to Pocc members. Selected contributors were supported in writing up and filming their answers, which then went live on the Guardian.
