Rife wants your Lockdown Diaries

We want to hear from young Bristolians about how lockdown is impacting you.

We want to see what your life looks like during lockdown. How are you adapting?  What are you doing to stay busy? What do you miss? What are you looking forward to?

You could film or photograph your day to day routine, fun and silly moments and more serious reflection. You could vlog to camera or film chosen moments out of your day. Be as creative as you like. We want videos that show what lockdown is like from your perspective.

Has work stopped for you? Are you a key worker? Has your college or university closed? Do you have an underlying health condition that makes life even more challenging right now?

This is a brand new film project which aims to reflect what living in lockdown is really like.

You’ll need something to film with – a camera or a phone – but we’ll help you out with the rest. We’ll send you all the information you need.  Use your smartphone, Go-Pro, DSLR, webcam… whatever you can get your hands on. We’ll give you some filming tips to help.

Send us the video and we’ll do the rest – we’ll be taking the best bits and creating a short film for Rife.

But we can’t do it without you. Tell us that you want to get involved by emailing editor@rifemagazine.co.uk.

The deadline to get in touch is 5pm on Friday 24th April.

Support more young people to have their voices heard

Rife is Watershed‘s online magazine created for young people, by young people.

We offer paid internships and publish work by young writers, photographers, illustrators, and filmmakers from all sorts of backgrounds, helping them get into creative careers. Rife has reached over 8,000 young people through our workshops, over 220 young people have made stuff for Rife on topics ranging from mental health to identity to baked beans, and last year, over 200,000 people visited our website.

In these complex and uncertain times hearing from and supporting young people who are advocating for social change and contributing fresh perspectives has never been so important. 

Through supporting Rife you can ensure that this important work continues and that more young people have their voices heard.
