The late, great David Bowie sang about them. Supposedly, they’re as good as a holiday. They’re one of life’s few certainties. And yet, sometimes they can be scary as heck.
In this issue, we take a flying leap into the great unknown, chatting with changemakers in the realms of playwriting, social activism and circus arts. We discuss ways to make change happen – in the innermost corners of our bustling minds, and out in the (often overwhelming) big, wide world. There are thought-provoking personal tales that might shift your views on certain ideas (there’s no need to check off a to-do list before you turn 30, for instance). Plus, we feature folks who weren’t afraid to try something new: training ants in mazes; mixing booze and baked goods; and using artificial intelligence to create some wackadoo knitting.
Really, change doesn’t need to be so daunting – after all, it happens around us all the time. A change of season, underwear, job, hairstyle, lunch spot. Without it, life would probably be pretty dull.
