A response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its ongoing effects on the Australian arts community.
Keeping creatives healthy.
The Happy Pack?
The Happy Pack is a little bit of everything the body and mind needs; it could be a free drink, a book to read, a microphone to add to the home setup, or a brand new puzzle. You won’t know exactly what’s in your pack until it arrives at your door but hopefully, it’ll make you feel a whole lot better.
SOMETHING TO EAT
Food and drink from locally sourced providers
SOMETHING TO DRINK
A cocktail, sixpack, or soda to take the edge off
SOMETHING TO DO
Puzzles, board games, garden items, and other ways to kill time in isolation
SOMETHING TO TREAT YOURSELF
Health, immunity, and beauty products for a much-needed self-care moment
SOMETHING TO INSPIRE
Books, classes, and other means for sustaining creativity at home
as of April 2020
But why are
we doing this?
The Happy Pack was created in response to COVID-19 lockdowns when artists were out of work, stuck at home, and staring down the barrel of months in these conditions. Not to mention, the arts community is particularly subject to difficulties with pay, mental health, recognition, and public funding.
While lockdowns have eased up, we’re committed to keep bringing joy with The Happy Pack. A great many people are still battling by the pandemic’s aftershock and for now, the deliveries will continue.
The Happy Pack doesn’t pretend to make up for any lost income, but it will give you something to look forward to, something to pass the time, and engage you with a community of like-minded creatives united by this crazy world order.
