Public Jam: The New Normal
2-part Jam: November 5th & 12th, 12-1:15pm (Pacific Time)
A new, experimental Jam format that takes your points of view as a basis for developing our Design Thinking journey together.
Pre-COVID we lived our lives as if things were normal. A few months into the 1st wave, social isolation and remote working had become normal. Now we find ourselves in a 2nd wave, and what is normal anymore? What do we hope becomes normal in the aftermath of COVID?
In most cases we tend to see our current norms as ever-present and stable, yet the idea of ‘normal’ is always a social construction. At this current moment when ‘normal’ is in flux,relative and overlapping, we have the opportunity to reflect on things and propose new ways of living together, during COVID and beyond.
This is a two part jam that will take place over the course of two zooms sessions, a week apart.
Thursday November 5th: 12-1:15pm PST
During the first Jam, we invite everyone to reflect upon questions related to our experience of “new normals” which have developed during the first and second waves of COVID-19. The outcomes of this discussion will inform the following week’s session.
Thursday November 12th: 12-1:15pm PST
During the second Jam, we will focus on a particular subject or outcome from the previous session, and collaborate to reorient ourselves for the next “new normal” phase of our lives.
