We asked a cross-section of our collaborators and community: What does it mean to be human, now? In these short films 11 contributors respond to the question, generously sharing their personal experiences of life and work during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In this film, our collaborators elaborate on their personal experiences of living and working during the coronavirus pandemic and share their thoughts and feelings about what comes next. It was filmed in October 2020, at the same time as Part 1, when there was no expectation of an imminent second lockdown. These stories are as relatable and thought-provoking now as they were then.
Please note that these films include references to racism, ableism and death from Covid-19.
