What do we need in times of adversity? What skills do we have emotionally and socially? What do we take when we need to grab and go? In Case of… is an exhibition of personal emotional preparedness kits that have been made in conversation with students from St Joseph’s Flexible Learning Centre. It emphasises the micro-planning, preparedness and stamina that vulnerable young people need on a daily level; and the societal planning we need for uncertain futures, disaster scenarios and urban resilience.
