Living in an Unliveable World
ONLINE SEMINAR SERIES
There are so many ways this world is unliveable, particularly for those with marginalised lived experiences.
In a world often hostile to diversity, and sometimes just plain hostile, how can we also experience the wonder of this world?
We've brought together six facilitators from around the world, all with unique experiences of unliveable worlds, all finding a way to live in them.
