the secret to gentle living: mind
 
Tomorrow we start a monthly Instagram live takeover with shesaid.so x A:live in the first of a three part series bringing together some of the most forward thinking minds in health & wellness. This week I am joined by the incredible Deborah Smith as we discuss happiness, how to develop resilience and how to grow through trauma.
 
Find us on Instagram from 6pm GMT 🤍

Over the last five weeks we have met some of the most inspiring & talented new musicians. Collaborating with @weare_spotlight & @apple, we created online workshops, panel discussions & conversations with some of the music industries most trusted voices.

To work on a project like this during lockdown has been such a blessing, especially when you get to learn so much from the next generation.

Tomorrow night, the artists from the programme are performing in front of a panel of industry experts & it’s going to be live on YouTube from 6pm. Would be awesome if you could join us alongside @_kaliclaire @preyecrooks@frances_music @folatooloud & @grantmotion • Watch here: apple.co/made-in-ldn-showcase 🦋 #MusicSurvival #MadeInLDN#TodayAtApple

 

Throughout lockdown, I wanted to work on projects that paid it forward and meant that when things start to build again, we come out of this stronger and more resilient. Learning really is so key to that. Collaborating with Apple for Made in LDN, throughout the summer holidays I have helped to curate a virtual programme for young people across London linking with Spotlight and the Major of London.

With sessions covering everything from building your artist profile and to crafting lyrics and telling your story through video, we have brought together some of the UK’s most respected voices.
