COVID-19 has hindered physical connection and blocked senses at large. Yet, there are a few organisations that have been working on making sense together during the pandemic by cultivating discussions in world-making with social justice, care and alternative economic and political infrastructures. This panel will present the organisational practices that are coming into being during the pandemic along with the on-going social, political and economic crises. It will discuss the ways to configure and reconsider the role of art, design and organisation today confronting challenges and opportunities arising in and after the pandemic. The panel will also cover how the internet is impacting the process of collective sense-making and social change.
