Creative Connections

Connecting Through Song

In a time of isolation, how do we as creatives stay connected to our art and to one another? Join NLT in our Facebook Live series, Creative Connections. Co-founders Newton Buchanan and Lena Mucchetti engage in a Facebook Live conversation with amazing artists, near and far, to find out how they are keeping their creativity alive during the time of COVID. Each session is followed by a brief video tutorial, created by our guest, that you can follow along with at home and add to your Coronavirus coping toolkit.

These days of distance can feel very dark, and we are all navigating uncharted waters in social isolation. Yet, we are not alone. NLT reminds you that we are still all connected, and there is strength in the human spirit, and beauty in coming together for a common goal.
