It’s natural to feel unmotivated and distracted during a crisis; it’s natural to have great difficulty focusing. But for some creatives, COVID-19 has provided new sources of inspiration and ideas, and perhaps even a renewed passion for their craft. Join some of the island’s most prolific writers and creatives to learn how their work has been impacted by these strange and challenging times.

Wajar jika merasa tidak termotivasi dan terganggu selama krisis; sangat alami jika mengalami kesulitan yang besar untuk fokus. Namun, bagi beberapa orang kreatif, COVID-19 telah memberikan sumber inspirasi dan ide baru, dan bahkan mungkin semangat baru bagi kerajinan mereka. Bergabunglah dengan beberapa penulis dan pekerja kreatif paling produktif di pulau ini untuk mempelajari bagaimana karya mereka dipengaruhi oleh masa-masa yang asing dan menantang ini.

This event will be pre-recorded. Click this link to submit your question for the panelists. Selected questions will be asked during the recording.
