How do you make things okay when they’re totally different? Cancelling events, staying 6 feet from friends (if you’re lucky enough to see them), and working from home… It’s a lot to adapt to. We miss hosting and interacting with real people every day. Luckily, access to the world wide web means we can connect across the digital landscape.
We know its not the same as hugging friends or shaking hands at a networking event, but these online events are here if you need a Thing To Do(tm). Activities stacked together make up a full day, and days go by one by one. After some amount of those days, we’ll be able to see you again.
May 1st – Out of Hand Modern Market is hosting its first online market! With glassware, spices, jewellery, and more, there’s sure to be something to catch your fancy. Supporting local businesses is a great way to keep our Victoria community vibrant.
May 3rd – Time for introspection! Leukemia survivor Suleika Jaouad has started a project called The Isolation Journals as a way of connecting with the self. Each morning you will wake up to a new journaling prompt, encouraging access to some of those hard feelings.
