Losing a livelihood, is more than just losing a paycheck. it is losing a form of self-identity, it losing an aspect of yourself, of your life and navigating this time can be very difficult. However, during this workshop, attendees will have some time to practise and reflect on what embracing the new normal could be like for each and every one of them. Whether they are an entrepreneur in the making, they are being re-introduced to education, or perhaps just travelling into the vast unknown... This workshop is giving permission to each individual to embrace a new aspect of themselves, their life, their professional aspirations and a way back to the working world.
This is a free workshop for people who have lost their job or are at risk of losing their jobs due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. This event is part of a series of creative events from The Loss Project's Covid-19 Response.

About The Loss Project
The Loss Project is a new initiative working across the UK and beyond aimed at connecting people in local communities through the experience of loss, death, dying or trauma.
We know that losses can come in various forms; the loss of independence, confidence, sense of self and of course, of loved ones. Our mission is to challenge the stigma and taboo of loss in its many forms, cutting through the barriers of difficult conversations and subjects that can often remain unspoken.
Through community conversations, social action and creative projects The Loss Project will aim to support communities to become more open and connected.
