At the beginning of lockdown we launched #isolatedtalent, an initiative on instagram showing what our performers have been up to in lockdown.
The hashtag celebrates our performers and shows that just because the industry is on hold for now, it doesn't mean their talent and creativity has to be. It also aims to give talent a voice and helps them stay in the minds of the event professionals who may want to book them when this is all over.
We've had some amazing submissions over the past few months from aerial straps in the rain to a timelapse caricature of a national hero there's a real mixed bag and it's well worth checking out.
Even though the lockdown is gradually lifting, we will continue to share #isolatedtalent on our feed until the industry is back on its feet and performers are back in their natural habitat - live events!
In addition to #isolatedtalent, we are also bringing you #newnormalfornow, a social campaign looking at the future of events and entertainment, imagining how the industry will adapt and innovate to accommodate social distancing. Go and get involved with the conversation over on our Instagram, we'd love your feedback and ideas.
