Louth In Lockdown!
Zero Degrees Festival cannot take place in its usual format this year. Like so many other activities and experiences across the world, we are having to do things differently.
With this in mind, we would like to invite people in Louth to share their experiences of Life in Louth under Lockdown. With luck, this will be a once-in-our-lives event, and we would like to capture people’s personal reflections on what that means.
We know for some it has created additional time and space, often in short supply. The sun has been shining and gardens are blooming. For others: our key workers or other people who are working very long hours; the risk of devastating illness; suffering from the effects of extreme isolation; or by the economic effects of not having work, these are not good times.
Children, teenagers, young adults, mid-lifers, older people: we invite you to put pen (or crayons) to paper, to tell it like it is. You can create a short description, poem, a drawing, a cartoon or even a photo to share your story. You can put your name to it, or keep it anonymous, as you wish.
We will create a patchwork gallery on the Zero Degrees Festival website, where all of our contributors’ work will be shared. If possible, we will also find other ways to share this material, once lockdown ends.
