As we begin to move out of lockdown it can be hard to navigate the ever-changing Covid guidelines, and Covid risk assessments have become a regular feature of our lives. How do we manage to create work, whilst ensuring that we are keeping ourselves and our collaborators safe?
Over the past year, Louise Gregory has worked on a number of Covid-safe live performances, outdoor, live-streamed, filmed, and digital work.
In this workshop, she draws on those experiences to give some practical advice to help guide you back into the studio.
Please note that all information and advice was correct at the time of broadcast on 7th July.
