While we may not be able to sit together at the moment, we can still come together virtually via digital exhibitions, livestreamed concerts, film watching parties and more, and there are many ways we can both find assistance and support one another during this uncertain time.

Below is a constantly growing list of links to articles, resources, grants, work opportunities and programs/films/exhibitions/gigs available online.

Please share your suggestions with us by emailing thecapitol@rmit.edu.au and tagging us on Instagram: @thecapitolrmit and #CAPSlockdown.
