What happens to the body in times of social distancing?
The body wants to stay safe but wants familiar connections and stimulation. It hosts fears and frustrations, about survival, and the future of the world. It is tired, frantic, and fragile. It also finds hope, solitude, and peace in slowing down.
We understand the significance of these experiences and emotions, and the need to express them to the world. So we are now announcing Distanced 2.0: a platform where you can share your experiences, vent your frustrations, find digital connections, reminisce happier pasts, or imagine better futures.
Building upon our success with the Distanced Project, we want to open our doors to all forms of art: poetry, prose, fiction, creative non-fiction, hybrid, visual art, photography, etc.
