In a brand new series, produced in partnership with Squarespace, Little White Lies and Huck spotlight artists and makers as they adapt to life under lockdown and an uncertain future.
Every day, people across the world are facing brand new hurdles as they adapt to unprecedented change. Freelancers are navigating a unique set of challenges as budgets are slashed and uncertainty takes hold. What is it like to go it alone in this new, rapidly changing world?
Creative Resilience is a brand new series, produced in collaboration with Squarespace, sharing inspiration, advice, and original artwork from freelance creatives as they adapt to life under lockdown. Over the next five months, we’ll explore what it’s like to go it alone in a time of crisis, spotlighting creativity amid disruption.
From sustaining a career as a self-taught photographer, to carving out a creative identity in a crowded city far from home, these tales of resolve show how obstacles give rise to innovation. The journey there is as difficult as it’s ever been — but the payoff has never been more rewarding.
