People all over the world are finding new and inventive way to entertain and be entertained during the COVID 19 pandemic.
In South Korea, violinist Won Hyung-joon was playing at home and broadcasting on social media to try and comfort people when staff at his local hospital asked him to perform for their Covid-19 patients.
The concert was held just outside a hospital room occupied by a grandmother, a mother and a three-month-old baby.
When England’s Northampton Film Festival was postponed, the organizers got creative and launched a “lockdown” movie competition.
It’s called “Kind of a Big Deal In My Living Room” and encourages the making of short films on how “I spent my self-isolation”.
It has a May 1st deadline for submissions and offers a 500-dollar prize to the winner.
