We want you to send us in a video of you talking about your experience of lockdown.
We want to hear about the moment you had you first hug in months, about the highs and lows of home-schooling? About what kept you positive and what made you sad?
Whatever you feel comfortable to share.
Simply record yourself talking to the camera and send in your video. Video length can be anything from 60 seconds long to 5 minutes long.
Way 1 -Get in touch with us
Way 2 - In touch with your community
We are going to be running live online movement sessions all focused around touch.
Self-empowerment, respect and confidence. Simple movement using your hands to touch, place and hold.
These sessions will help you to understand how to get in touch with yourself and value these connections when you’re faced with others.
Way 3 – Get in touch
We are going to be hosting an open online space where you can have a conversation.
We will be hosting an open space chat online every week where you can meet new people and build relationships. We know how important new connection are and we want to help facilitate a sense of belonging in the people from across Coventry, Warwickshire and the wider region to share stories of Lockdown.
‘in touch’ is a Coventry community project aimed at hosting conversations with people and building a connecting with those who have been in isolation since the start of lockdown.
‘in touch’ is about rediscovering the bonds between people that Covid-19 has dissolved. Touch is most fundamental to being human; we want to listen to your stories and help start the work to repair a sense of belonging.
Will look to use our experience in movement to help people get back in touch with themselves as well as others.
This invitation is open to everyone, and we are particularly interested in connecting with people who are:
Who are or have been in solitary isolation. (None or extremely limited external connections)
People who are/were unable to see partners or loved one
People with newborns or children under 1 year old.
Single Parents and sole carers
People whose first language isn’t English
People from Black, Asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds.
We hope to be able to host a number of sessions aimed at personal expressions and conversations. We hope to facilitate simple movement tasks so you can connect with yourself and share stories and experiences.
Please don’t be intimated by movement, these tasks will be optional and will be able to be delivered whilst sitting down. We are really interested in opening a conversation around these themes.
