Website Copywriting by Freya Clarke
An Archive of Creativity in Lockdown

An archive documenting creative process during a period of lockdown.

Including contributions from photographers, artists, designers, writers and academics from across the UK, the archive was conceived during the Covid-19 lockdown period. Juxtaposing text and imagery across a range of mediums and genres, the archive provides an unfiltered reflection on the effects of a period outside of previous collective experience.

Utilising logical references (such as indexing) in dialogue with the diverse creative material highlights the tension between order and disorder felt during lockdown, whilst giving the archive a sustainable framework for expansion.

£5 from the sale of every copy will be donated to MAP, a charity providing creative education to young people.
