To kick off this new series, I speak to Subhadra Das (@LittleGaudy), Curator of the Science Collections at UCL. Subhadra is doing some really exciting work re-assessing UCL’s scientific and natural history collections and bringing them to wider public knowledge in new and innovative ways – from not-so-traditional exhibitions and gallery interventions, to stand-up comedy shows.   For more info: https://thewonderhouse.co.uk/episode-1-subhadra-das-bricks-mortals   Produced by Sushma Jansari (@TheWonderHouse) & Nick Harris (@2ndThoughtTank)

Today, I'm speaking to Gaylene Gould, Creative Director of The Space to Come and coach. I am drawing on her coaching expertise  in this episode. The question I put to Gaylene was: How do we go about planning in an environment of almost total uncertainty on every possible level? Starting with the point that change is the only thing that is constant, and with the idea of self compassion at its heart, Gaylene suggests ways in which we can harness this moment to reevaluate our key priorities, motivations and, importantly, find a way to sit still in a time of uncertainty.
