Watch: How Should We Understand Life In a Pandemic?

In this TED Talk, policymaker and poet Aaron Maniam speaks about how the language we use to talk about COVID shapes the way that we think about our experience with pandemic. He touches upon the inequality of COVID, and how some of us are experiencing relief: more time with our families; while others are suffering and losing everything. Maniam shows how encouraging a range of metaphors and transformative possibility allows us to imagine a better, more equitable, and more inclusive future.
