As lockdown gripped the country, many of us began to question our assumptions: what are we working for? Are we living our best lives? Is this the way the world should be? For survivors of brain injury, many of whom are at high-risk and were already isolated, the pandemic has been both a profound test and an opportunity for radical thinking. Hear the story of survivor Rosy, from brain injury charity Headway East London, and then join a conversation with experts from across the fields of sociology, philosophy and neuropsychology, exploring previously unimagined futures. How can we ensure that the ‘new normal’ works for the neurodiverse? And what emerging practices and arrangements might hold the key to a more accessible future?
