The past year has been… different. We’ve all had to adapt to a new and evolving set of constraints, and many have had to endure and persevere through significant changes to their work, social lives, and creativity. But we have also learned new skills and discovered new ways of doing things. As we begin to return to more traditional, in-person activities, how can we take what we’ve learned during the pandemic and do things better?
In this series, co-hosts Melinda Steffy and Youngmoo Kim will talk to members of Philadelphia’s creative community (broadly defined) about what they’ve learned and what changes will inform their efforts moving forward.
