Spaced Out (Forum for Philosophy)
8 February, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
City centres have experienced an exodus. Social distancing has emptied work places and theatres, and transformed the way we move through parks, streets, and supermarkets. At the same time, lockdown has meant that we are ever-present in our own homes. How can we plan for a future where human beings can share both public and private spaces? Katie Beswick, Julia King, and Antoine Picon discuss what this new COVID-19 world might look like.
