Waiting for Flowers to Bloom: Life in Lockdown

MA Creative Enterprise students at the University of Reading explore their experiences of self-care throughout lockdown – documenting and discussing their self-care practices through different forms of artistic expression

A short film by University of Reading MA Creative Enterprise students which investigates the concept of self-care within the context of Covid-19 and the restrictions placed on us as university students. In this film we demonstrate different perspectives on how we treat ourselves, live with ourselves, try to keep a positive attitude during the pandemic, and discuss our definitions of caring in a socially-distanced, sometimes online only, environment.
