Coronavirus - Useful info and resources

The London arts community has, like many others, been rocked by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Many galleries have either temporarily shut their doors to the public or postponed upcoming events in order to reduce the further spread of the virus.

We've collated a useful set of resources to help the community stick together and come back stronger over the coming weeks.

If you would like to suggest any further resources to add please email [email protected].
