Melanie Walby is the Design Director at Pollen Midwest, a media arts organization that fosters empathy, encourages connection, and inspires meaningful action to change our collective story for the better.

We discuss how time can seem simultaneously short and long, virtual connections and whether people are suffering from Zoom fatigue, how illuminating diverse perspectives creates understanding and a better collective story, the best advice from creative mentors, and how hope always exists alongside anxiety.

From our Conversations With Quarantined Creatives series.
