As we think about Cornwall’s visitor economy and how to build back better when we re-open, we are inspired by the positive changes to home and work life prompted by our current situation – slowing down, travelling less, adopting new technologies, connecting with community. How we can make them into lifelong habits?
Each week as we cross the half-way hump on a Wednesday, we’d like to share some of the positive habits you’ve developed that help you and your business and that you hope to continue post lockdown. It could be things you’ve always done or new activities. Perhaps they are tips and tricks you’ve borrowed from your online communities or long held ambitions that you finally have time to do. We are opening the challenge to you to share ideas that will benefit others and in so doing, give you a lovely warm glow.
First up and looking close to home and Cornwall 365’s raison d’être:
Thanks to the talents and efforts of our brilliant creative sector and our colleagues at FEAST who are commissioning new digital content through their Re-ignition fund, Cornwall 365 What’s On is now brimming with new digital experiences and performances. Our Week Ahead newsletter brings you a range of new ways to engage with distinctive cultural experiences all from the comfort and safety of your own home. Of course we miss the atmosphere, the interactivity and the ice cream at the interval or the gift shop but the positive thing about going online is that we can easily explore experiences that might have been out of our reach due to accessibility, geography or time.
As well as our listings, you will find links to cultural and community venues, museums and galleries so if lockdown means extra time on your hands, now is your chance to dig a little deeper and uncover some of Cornwall’s cultural treasures. And why not share your new knowledge with your networks and business audiences. Visitors who are longing to travel to Cornwall can feel engaged through your recommendations and local audiences will love your tenacity and connectedness.
Next week we will be looking at travel. Could you share ideas about how your new travel habits could become a way of life? If you have a half week habit to share please get in touch: email@example.com
