We are living in a complex time. A mundane activity of jumping on to a bus or sending their child to school without feeling real fear? Who can think of ordinary pleasure and not assess its risk?

Taking a cue from Arundhati Roy’s prescient essay, this webinar will speculate, reflect and imagine new possibilities, recalibrated realities for creativity, museums and biennials in the shadow of the global pandemic. The participants will delve into cultural responses to catastrophe, climate change and virtual commuting between the Global South and Global North.
