The RC Social Entrepreneur Club (RC SEC) gave students and faculty a platform to share their experiences under quarantine through the online event Lockdown Stories on May 1. During the event, participants heard from people who were struggling to adapt to a new routine away from their friends, people who discovered new hobbies, and people who were seeing this period as an opportunity to enjoy time with their families.
“RC SEC has always played a leading role at RC in organizing events where people could build connections with others, so we thought of adapting our culture into an online environment,” explains a L9 student who is the event facilitator. “While organizing Lockdown Stories, we were influenced by Moth Stories and from the time when our ancestors gathered around the fire and told each other stories. RC is a diverse community, so we wanted to create a similar experience by creating a variety among our storytellers.”
