A virtual open house – 64 Sandgate

I met Philippa a few years ago – she did a workshop with me in Instagram, one of her many areas of expertise. She has an incredible following and is, amongst other things, an artist, actress and author of a brilliant book on Conscious Creativity. If that wasn’t enough she is a really excellent positively infectious human too.

I was lucky enough to be invited to be in her Open House over the last few years. But with the current situation all such events are understandably scuppered. This was not going to deter Philippa and she set to work doing a virtual open house. Head down she built a website, took images of the invited artists’ work, then spent a tireless week interviewing all of us on Instagram live.

The web store is open for the rest of May and there are some beautiful things to peruse and purchase from your own living room.

Above and beyond what this has highlighted is that I am lucky to be involved with such a brilliant group of creative people. Generosity in sharing your audience, skill sharing and kindness in supporting others is king (or queen) in these most strange of times.
