Welcome to a brand new season of Freelance Creative Exchange!

As the coronavirus spreads globally, local creative companies and freelancers start to bear the blunt of economic fallout with projects being canceled or postponed.

We are excited to speak to Nicholas Chee, founder of  SG COVID-19 Creative/Cultural Professionals & Freelancers Support Group, who has been active in bringing our diverse  creativity community together from painters, drama educators to cameraman and illustrators, as well as engaging with the media and government bodies to raise awareness of the plight. 

How can we professionalise our creativity industry? Why is it important for us to look to regional markets to expand? What can we do to survive and grow our industry post cover-19?
