Alone Together

IN RESPONSE TO THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC, DAZED LAUNCHED #ALONETOGETHER, A CELEBRATION OF CREATIVITY IN ISOLATION AND A PROJECT THAT AIMED TO PLATFORM AND SUPPORT OUR READERS.

We gave away our spring summer issue covered by Billie Eilish away to readers for free, we Zoom-ed with Louis Theroux and Rebecca Black, while Benji B, Erol Alkan, Sherelle, LCY, and Tygapaw brought house, techno, and disco to bumping IG live DJ sets, and Charli XCX shared her intimate diary from the first weeks of quarantine as she worked on her album how i’m feeling now.

In the Class of Covid-19 video series, young people from across the world shared their thoughts on graduating amid a global crisis and how they were looking after their mental health, while healthcare and essential workers detailed the intense iteration of life and work on the frontlines of the pandemic.

Chefs DeadHungry and Kelis gave us culinary delights to impress our Zoom dates and break up quarantine boredom. Creatives from New York, Lagos, Delhi, and Beijing let us in on their lockdown times and how they were making art through it.

35 artists contributed work to our poster campaign, from Wolfgang Tillmans, to Vivienne Westwood, 3D, Katharine Hamnett, and Samuel Ross, raising money for Barts Charity to support NHS staff. #AloneTogether is a document of a moment in history, a time capsule of how youth felt in 2020.
