Creative ideas during the lockdown

By simon.bralee.15, on 6 April 2020

It is more important than ever to take time to unwind and relax. Even if you are at home for most of the day, there are great things you can do either on your own, with your household or remotely with friends or family.

Creative outlets


Museums and galleries



  • Netflix Party allows you to watch something online with your friends

Books and Poetry


Take up ballet


Colouring books




Share your knowledge, discover new passions

This list was created by Occupational Development as part of Remote, not Distant and by UCL Acrts and Heritage, as part of #CreativeComfort.

For more ideas, join colleagues in the Break Room on Microsoft Teams and have a chat, swap tips and share photos of cats.

Stay well everyone and have a good weekend.

(Note: UCL do not provide or recommend Zoom. It remains the recommendation of ISG that staff should use UCL provided or recommended tools where practical as these have been subject to scrutiny for security and GDPR compliance. In the unusual circumstances we find ourselves in, with services rapidly moving online, staff may decide to use non-UCL provided solutions where the UCL solutions do not fulfil their requirements.  On the use of Zoom, if this is used, ISG recommend using the web based rather than the app- based client. This allows greater control of the information shared with the provider. There are concerns about Zoom’s approach to privacy.  Any user should ensure they read and understand Zoom’s privacy policy).
