  • A lovely project by Brighton Festival and Lemn Sissay, Tell Me Something about Family is a crowdsourced collection of stories about families.
  • A couple of new culture podcasts I came across, for arts' sake which describes itself as "a podcast with museum people". And Talking Culture from the Goethe Institut.
  • Orchestras Live has created this wonderful 20 minute film 'Hear and Now' "... featuring music and visual imagery gathered throughout online workshops with participants from our Hear and Now project co-produced with the Philharmonia during 2020". I found this really moving and joyful.
