It has been a very tough time for the world at the moment, there is a lot of sadness and worry in these difficult times. Whilst we are all being asked to stay at home to save the life of others there are members of various communities that are holding different streaming and events online that people can partake in to keep spirits up and to bring a bit of cheer and joy in anyway they can. Here is some of the events that are happening below, we will try and bring you one of these as much as we can with as many events that are happening as possible. I write the Phoenix Remix as my form of enjoyment as I adore writing but in a time where we live in a sad world, I want to make it a place I can bring people together as much as possible.
