    The coronavirus pandemic has severely affected the arts all over the world. But in the United Kingdom, some artists are thriving despite cancelled shows and gallery closures. The pandemic has pushed both professional artists and amateurs alike to find creative means of expression. And it is not just an artistic contribution they are making but an important economic one as well. Whether it is regenerating spaces or creating objects that are bought and sold, the UK’s artistic wealth will be a vital part of its post-pandemic economic recovery. Al Jazeera’s Sonia Gallego reports from Liverpool, UK. –
