Covid 19: Online Resources and Assistance

Published: 27 March 2020 Author: The NewBridge Project

In these disorienting times, we hope we can still offer a touchstone for advice and guidance, and continue our artist support and development work. In the recent days and weeks we have been keeping track of online content that might help, educate, entertain or distract from the crisis at hand.

Here are our findings. This page will be updated as we hear of more. If you’d like us to add something please email us.
