Musicians / Artists
COVID-19 PIVOT (COVOT)
Concerts were quick to feel the effects of the pandemic. Many were postponed or cancelled, leaving a number of musicians out of work. Even on a local scale, many bars and clubs have been shut, forcing artists to get more creative with how they make a living. Visual artists are experiencing the same problem — with galleries, markets and cafes closed, opportunities to display work are limited.
- Perform concerts from home for listeners online. This has already proven popular with a number of musicians, and also has the additional benefit of being able to interact with fans.
- For musicians, start a podcast with band members. This could be simply exploring the band history or answering listeners questions
- Use the time to create - make exclusive recordings or artwork only available for sale during the quarantine
