Just this week, SOAP&SKIN released a cover version of "What's Going On?" which reflects our current situation almost too well: within a week, our world has changed drastically. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to shut down our Q21 Artist-in-Residence program temporarily in order to ensure everybody's health and safety. In countries worldwide, people are being asked to stay indoors so as not to further spread the virus.
These are extraordinary circumstances for all of us and we wanted to give you an insight into our former Artists-in-Residence's perspectives on how they are coping with the situation in their country. We will be posting their video messages on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) - make sure to follow them and let's stay in touch online!
Stay safe, stay healthy!
