Lockdown Learning Club

We want to make a film during lockdown, and help some people who have lost income due to COVID-19 earn a bit of money.

Applications are now closed. We'll be in touch.

The Proposal:

Want to teach yourself a new skill and get paid for it? You're in luck!

In partnership with Honlodge Productions—supported by Who Paid, Total Mindfulness, and act4tv—we're looking for 6 people who are currently unemployed due to COVID-19 and interested in learning a new skill; in this instance: drawing.

Via a video call each day, participants will commit one hour to practising their drawing skills amongst themselves. They will encourage each other and share any resources they've found to better their ability. A short documentary will be curated from recordings of each session and released as a 4-part series on Amazon Prime Video.

There's no real goal in terms of skill development; as long as you turn up to each session and give it your best shot, we'll be happy and you'll get a total of £200 (£10/hour).

Generously supported by
