The disillusionment phase
Our mental response to disaster works in phases. Where are we now? The disillusionment phase, when we come to terms with grief and loss for what we don't have anymore. Clinical Psychologist Kira Mauseth explains the phases that got us here and what it means to be disillusioned in the COVID-19 pandemic.
How will COVID-19 change the future of tourism?
As we reach peak holiday travel season many of us are looking for safe and distanced alternatives to our seasonal tourism. Sarah Murdoch, founder and executive director of the Guide Collective, shares her hopes for the future of tourism and how virtual travel can give us the varied cultural experiences we search out as tourists.
The music that's getting us through quarantine

Artists are finding new ways to connect with fans in isolation, venues are looking for creative ways to stay afloat, and we're all looking for a 2020 anthem to capture life in this unparalleled moment.
