Covid Travels

The limitations of travel during the pandemic and the rise of virtual travel. The purpose of this is to understand how Covid-19 has affected travel in a physical sense and created a demand for travelling through entertainment media as a form of ‘escapism’. With the travel bans in place, people have been forced to investigate their own immediate environment or turn to virtual travel websites to explore the world from the comfort of their homes. As the use of Zoom meetings became increasingly necessary, conversations with people abroad became more accessible. We will also be looking at the social behaviours of people using public transport during the pandemic such as social distancing, masks and physical interactions.

Even more, looking at the rise of food trafficking and parcel trafficking has skyrocketed the only people on the streets are food delivery drivers. The overwhelming number of people buy food online and shop for parcels online making Covid-19 pandemic a good thing for these company’s allowing them to grow while other suffer.

Topics can include visual work that depicts the change in:

Social interaction,

Public transport,

Virtual connectivity,

Deliveries / trafficking for food.

Wellbeing in relationships at home

Art has proven to be playing a significant role in promoting wellbeing. Different researches conducted by the Mental Health Foundation are clearly showing that arts in general have many positive and beneficial effects on our physical and mental health.

The creative industries were among those who were heavily affected by the pandemic and the lockdown. Тhe effects of the lockdown, physical and mental, are yet to be considered, recognised and analysed. The growing fears of unemployment, the furlough system, the loss of what we as humans consider as normal life and social distancing are just some of the few issues that have a direct or indirect impact on our wellbeing and relations at home.

We’re looking for people to submit thought-provoking work that raise awareness about the problems and the benefits related to our wellbeing.

Topics can include:

Wellbeing in relationships at home;

Positives or negatives of spending more time with our family during lockdown;

Exercise at home and exploring the “great indoors”;

Domestic violence;

Fear of isolation and social distancing.
