SORRY WE MISSED YOU

SYNOPSIS

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 financial crash. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self employed delivery driver. It’s hard work, and his wife’s job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

PANEL CONVERSATION

COVID-19 And Navigating The Demands Of Change

“Change is the only constant” – we all know that. However, 2020 has shown us a pace of change like never before. One that forces individuals and families to constantly adapt to the ever-evolving demands of work and family life. At its peak, everyday discourses were saturated with stories of people in desperate situations: those wrestling at the fringe of unemployment; fresh graduates at the mercy of an economic recession; caregivers struggling to find alternative care arrangements when schools are shut. For many, the pandemic is an experience that has stretched limits and has put resilience to the test.

In this panel conversation, we gather individuals from different walks of life as we look back at the impacts of the pandemic and examine the ‘How’s to recovering and thriving post-COVID. As we hear and get encouraged by individual stories of resilience, we will discuss what “being resilient” entails, and how we can adopt and cultivate adaptive coping strategies to emerge better, and stronger.

BOOK PAIRING

This Is What Inequality Looks Like

SYNOPSIS

What is poverty? What is inequality? How are they connected? How are they reproduced? How might they be overcome? Why should we try?

The way we frame our questions shapes the way we see solutions. This book does what appears to be a no-brainer task, but one that is missing and important: it asks readers to pose questions in different ways, to shift the vantage point from which they view ‘common sense,’ and in so doing, to see themselves as part of problems and potential solutions. This is a book about how seeing poverty entails confronting inequality. It is about how acknowledging poverty and inequality leads to uncomfortable revelations about our society and ourselves. And it is about how once we see, we cannot, must not, unsee.
