'Life in Isolation' is a live public journal and online community which aims to bring people together in a positive way, as we navigate the global challenges of COVID-19, and a very uncertain future. 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?
‘Life in Isolation’ aims to document real stories, from real people, how we adapt and 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.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR WRITERS, JOURNALISTS, STORYTELLERS AND THE PUBLIC TO DOCUMENT THE HIGHS, THE LOWS, THE STRESSES AND STRUGGLES, OPINIONS AND OBSERVATIONS. THIS IS A PLATFORM FOR CONTEMPLATION, REFLECTION, AND DISCUSSIONS ON THE CHALLENGES AND HOW WE ADAPT TO THE FUTURE THROUGH COVID-19.
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 can share stories that lift our spirits and inspire. 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 through
We want all of these stories from the heart, to echo real people’s experiences and reflections.
This is 100% NON-PROFIT and purely to help keep spirits high and unite our communities. We hope the content will bring together an incredibly positive community group whilst people are stuck in-doors.
