Back in March 2020 we compiled a list of free resources for freelancers struggling in the UK because of COVID-19 and its widespread affects.
Very few of them were created by us - we simply found them online and thought they might be useful to our community, so compiled them here.
(This list was last updated Nov 6th 2020)
(As we are based in the UK a lot of these resources are UK focused, but some work no matter where you are in the world)
They’re organised into the following categories:
Specialised creative resources - A collection of various resources uniquely targeted at artists (these have the added benefit of being kept up to date regularly)
Live stream resources - as there’s so much interest in how to bring performance art online, we thought it deserved its own category.
Teach online - opportunities and resources to help you teach or learn online.
Transition existing skills online - resources, blog posts, and tips on bringing your work online
Freelance online - share your skills with individuals and businesses online
Online support groups - Online forums to connect with, discuss with, and support others who have been similarly affected.
Quick Links - to collective covid info
Still useful - a collection of resources that haven’t been updated recently, but are still useful.
We have created a few resources of our own:
Creative skills - a site where you can offer your creative skills to anyone anywhere, and easily get paid. We made this site during covid to support artists, so we charge no commission.
The social distance calculator to help venue owners calculate the max number of people they can fit safely in their venue.
