Adwoa Aboah has launched a new digital initiative, #CopingTogether, through her platform Gurls Talk.
The campaign aims to use creativity to promote “healthy, constructive and positive coping techniques” during the current coronavirus pandemic.
As the country now practices social distancing and self-isolation, many have found themselves feeling lonely, uncertain and fearful.
The #CopingTogether campaign encourages people to submit their art, whether paintings, videos, sculptures or sketches – anything that helps “process your emotions” – to its website so they can share with its global community and make people feel less alone.

Founder Aboah shared news of the initiative on her Instagram to encourage followers to submit their creativity. “These are uncertain times and I know that like me, a lot of you out there are feeling anxious and looking for ways to cope,” she said.
“To that end, and in the spirit of staying connected, Gurls Talk is launching our Coping Together initiative. I’m inviting you all to join me in submitting art, videos, photos, poetry, essays, journal entries, humour – anything that helps you process your emotions. I can’t wait to see all your work.”
