Atlas Pandemica: Maps to a Kinder World is a project that is designed to encourage innovative approaches in charting the changes that have happened around us recently and to try and navigate the way forward into a more hopeful and shared future.
Dumfries and Galloway has a vibrant creative culture and the project seeks to use this to explore and respond to the informal community networks of care that have recently grown up in the gaps between the more traditional institutions in our region.
What new thinking and strategies have been used, what can we learn from them and how can we nurture and maintain them in the future?
