Creating a Time Capsule of Creative Responses to an Unprecedented Time
Creativity often flourishes in stressful times because innovation evolves out of need. During the coronavirus pandemic, we are witnessing a range of creative responses, from personal to global and from community to institutions to industry. What do these responses to the pandemic tell us about our society, our level of resilience, and how we might imagine the future?
Please help us collect information as we generate a time capsule of creative responses. Share your creative projects or add projects that have inspired you.
