At the start of 2020, disaster of a certain type loomed large in our collective consciousness - catastrophic events created by an evolving environmental crisis seemed suddenly to be terrifyingly close to home. This disaster narrative still looms large, but the Covid-19 curve-ball thickens the plot in a critical way, very few understood or anticipated just a few months ago.
School of Critical Design co-founder Gemma Jones will look at the concept of disaster with a semiotic and cultural lens and open up a discussion about how adapting to a disaster era could play out in ways that can enrich our human experience.
