Crossing species lines and national borders, COVID-19 has swiftly foregrounded the interconnected state of all life, human and otherwise, illuminating the myriad ways human culture is entangled with and dependent upon the well-being of more-than-human ecologies.

As relentless change and unpredictability become ‘the new norm’, how might those other worlds, beyond the human, help to envision possible futures that centre care, hope and collaborative resilience?

And how might they help reimagine periods of instability as periods of transition, or even sites for transformation?

Reflecting on worlds beyond-the-human, this panel of interdisciplinary practitioners will explore themes of adaptation, emergence, symbiosis, ecological stewardship, and storytelling for collaborative survival.
