Lockdown measures may be easing for some. But with the pandemic continuing to flare up around the world, it's unlikely that most of us will be visiting galleries, museums, theatres, concert venues or anywhere else creatively inspiring any time soon. And as for networking, you probably shouldn't expect to be attending a creative conference, meetup or art show for some months to come.

So whether you're looking for creative inspiration or to make new connections, social media is going to be your safest bet for a while. But if you just remain stuck in your normal echo chamber of friends and acquaintances, that can still turn out to be pretty limited.
