Called the Bottega Residency, it will play host to the creative minds that have influenced Bottega Veneta and its collaborators. Think film directors, writers, musicians and performers.

A weekly itinerary features a chance to meet that week’s resident. You’ll be introduced to their favourite writers, artists and watch clips from directors they love. The Residency also features a guide to the best ways to spend your time online.

Over the weekends (remember those?) the residency will feature live music on a Friday, cooking a recipes from up-and-coming chefs on a Saturday and on Sunday, a movie night.

The residency’s aim is to provide a sense of normality and inspiration at a time when routines are disrupted and people are having to self-isolate.

With the UAE government calling on everyone to stay at home and the cancelling or closure of everyone’s usual forms of entertainment, the world is turning to virtual gatherings as a way to pass the time.

Concerts began being cancelled in the UAE at the end of February and since then cinemas, beaches, malls, gyms and restaurants have all been closed.

The need to stay at home has left many with a lot of free time on their hands and no way of filling it.

You’ll be able to pull up a chair and enjoy the Bottega Residency on Instagram, Weibo, Line, Kakao, Spotify, Apple Music and on Bottega’s own website.

Bottega’s creative director, Daniel Lee said of the Residency:
