Wednesday, March 24 @9am ET:  Pandemic Fiction—Mobility
Co-hosted with Daimler

For many people, the ability to move freely is a defining experience, something that helps them understand the world around them and their place in it. In this session, we will show artwork from design artists illustrating their "little worlds" while being immobilized. We want to use these artworks as springboards to discuss opportunities to become mobile again.
