Creativity and innovation have always depended on collaboration — whether people are making art, building structures or innovating tech. But how does collaboration work in a time of distancing? How do we hack our way to health? Creatives often say they need to be in a room together and ‘feel the vibe’, yet we’re constantly finding new ways of creating togetherness apart. In this series, Kerrie Finch — founding partner of Futurefactor — will sit down with creative collaborators to discuss how we can apply their insights to business and the world of creative communication. How have they adapted to the current situation? Have they discovered new ways to work, play and perform together? Join us for a left-field conversation on how to stay creatively connected during and post-pandemic.
