Travel may broaden the mind, but (since we can't do that at the moment) so will reading about other cultures. Check out the latest book by Louise Tu'u, We Fit the Criteria, which is on pre-sale now. The educational textbook showcases two of her critically acclaimed plays, Le Tauvaga/The Competition and Horses And Other Farm Animals. Le Tauvaga/The Competition, Louise's first ever play, looks at a Samoan teenager's struggle with his identity through trialling for the Samoan Competitive Group for Polyfest. Meanwhile the acclaimed Horses And Other Farm Animals is a uniquely interactive extravaganza. Louise is also the founder of We Should Practice, an independent organisation that creates works of performance, moving image and public art and is proactive in public and community projects.

Jacobi's creative campaign aims to lighten our spirits

If you're feeling a little low two weeks into lockdown, this will help lift your spirits. Marvellous Miryam Jacobi and a couple of fellow creatives have put together a short campaign video to encourage people to keep holding on, telling each other they will #seeyousoon. Here's how Miryam describes it: "Each person recorded themselves directly onto their phones. We simply asked people to record a message talking to the person they missed the most, and why. We encouraged them to allow whatever came up to emerge - laughter, tears, any feelings/thoughts/emotions. We also asked them to be specific - to embrace the details of taste, smell, touch... I think because the concept was so clear and it is something nearly every single person is experiencing right now, it [all] translated into the cohesion and emotional arc of the piece. Although it was a delicate process - while we were making it some people opted out. We had to be very mindful and respectful as it is such an overwhelming time, and we didn't want to put people under more pressure than they're already facing."
