The Quarantine Workbook has been developed by Lara Seixo Rodrigues for her Lisbon based arts platform, Mistaker Maker. The workbook is packed with creative content to help ease the boredom of Quarantine, keep cognitive skills up, and allow for a bit of fun and interaction between isolated communities who have been hit hardest by stay at home orders. Although it was initially aimed at the ‘shielded’ communities and some of society’s most vulnerable, such as individuals in care homes, the immuno-compromised, and those facing an extended time in isolation, its popularity has seen it spilling out into the wider community.
The book, made up of tasks from 40 contributing Illustrators, artists, calligraphers, writers, urban artists, architects and more has now been translated into multiple languages. The Quarantine Workbook is soul food for the times we are living in, it is 100% free and available to download online. Much like the times – the reach and purpose of the Quarantine Workbook is ever evolving, it has now spread across the globe, covering 68 countries, with 6,500+ copies delivered to global institutions and a further 18,000+ copies printed out and delivered to their respective elderly communities. There’s been in excess of 65,000 website visits already so please join us in this mission and help spread the word.
