(4) Email of last resort

Most artists/designers are self-employed. Losing your job is not simply about losing an income. For some, it can involve a sense of losing your identity, purpose, or even meaning. If you are feeling this way, we have set up an email of last resort. We will endeavour to try an offer practical advice and research as best we can if you feel hemmed in by your situation. Sometimes a word of encouragement and hope is vital. This email will be monitored daily. Helpandhope20@gmail.com
