In the midst of our relative comfort, the fabled horsemen of War, Famine, Pestilence and Death have crashed the party once again. Be it through war or internecine strife, the oncoming threat of shortage and hunger, or the ‘normalisation’ of climate change, we find ourselves challenged as never before.
How do we react to these vast and troubling changes? Do we go into denial, act out in agitated reaction, or settle for our forebears’ dull cloak of numbness.
Join poet William Ayot and psychotherapist Simon Roe as they help us to air our grief, explore the possibilities, and remember those we have lost over these last troubled and troubling years.
