Share the #hertielove: Attend an online festival

COVID-19 has left people disappointed over cancelled events, but one festival is still bringing people together—albeit digitally. The Social Distancing Festival is being held online to celebrate art from all around the world—including plays and musicals, writing, and photography. The website hosts live streams where viewers can tune in to see live performances—and also offers submissions for any artists looking to virtually share their craft. True to any festival, there is also a “Beer Tent” where community members meet up in an online chatroom!

Points for consistency?

Share the #hertielove: Get cultured

You can still have your morning, afternoon or even night at the museum. Take a virtual museum tour! Under the Instagram hashtag #MuseumFromHome, cultural institutions have shared several informative posts about their collections and other artworks in an effort to continue to share knowledge and culture with the public, despite the closings. TIME Magazine has also put together a handy list of the virtual offerings of major museums and galleries.

Spot the difference ;)

Share the #hertielove: A (virtual) afternoon at the zoo

While going for a jungle safari seems near impossible in the coming weeks, we can always witness a slice of wildlife via the internet. The Cut has a long list of zoos which are live-streaming, meaning you can watch polar bear cubs discover dirt or giant pandas wrecking a bamboo stick. If pet animals are more of your thing, check out this live broadcast of puppies being trained to become service dogs.

Testing, testing, is this thing on?
