3-4pm: ‘Bold Imagination from the Impossible to Possible’ with Phoebe Tickell
On Zoom

Join Moral Imaginations for a one hour virtual imagining session using the collective imaginary of The Impossible Train Story. Using the shared metaphor and imaginary world of the Impossible Train, we will travel to a place beyond space and time to make sense of what has happened during the Covid-19 pandemic, and explore possible futures together. You will need a good internet connection and preferably your video on – but not essential!

If you would like to join from KWMC using one of our laptops, let us know.
