Natalie connected with Robert over Twitter and loved his approach to the emerging artist, theatre, and his passion for exploring and offering solutions to the disconnect between venue and artist. She was super excited to come on board as a producer within KickitDown's Lockdown Liftups. So what is Lockdown Liftups and how can actors, artists, writers, creatives get involved?
Lockdown has been a very tough time socially, emotionally, financially and creatively for all of those involved in the arts. Artists Share is a space to talk (on-line) about those things and the joys that are found in this time also. It's about ensuring connection through that shared experience.
The 1st Artist Share took place on Wednesday 27 May 2020 and was a huge success with artists calling in from everywhere including LA!
