Bubbles of Hope

The COVID lockdown is back to Melbourne. I feel a lot of us are going down a river of uncertainty. We are trying to hold onto things so that we won’t get swept away. We don’t know where we are going and that causes fear but it also causes excitement for new things ahead.

I was really amazed how during the last lockdown we created lots of little Bubbles of Hope floating on the river: Reaching out to neighbours, reconnecting with old friends, making new friends online, getting lost exploring and discovering new interests. Taking time to reflect on what is important and gaining new perspectives and purpose. 

Let’s create more Bubbles of Hope this time, spaces where we can breathe and in which we can just be and share who we are without the fear. If you feel like you don’t have the energy to create a bubble, join one that’s already there. We have created some at Vast Experiences to share ideas at Ideas Anonymous and connect in the morning at the Early Work Crew or check-in at Sunday Night Feast you are creating a bubble, invite and pull in those that need a helping hand. You are amazing. Your kindness will make a big difference in the lives of the people you reach out to. 

We are going into this lockdown together and we will come out together. Once we are out we will be more resilient, more experienced, more connected and we will have more perspective. 

In these turbulent waters, the Bubbles of Hope are protecting us and will carry us to places we can’t even imagine yet. We got this! 

Ideas Anonymous #10

We explored lots of ideas to enhance experiences at Ideas Anonymous #10 last night.

Here are the ideas that were shared:

  • Augmented reality to visualise ingredients on food menus 
  • Foldable Kneeling Chair
  • Interactive virtual music experiences to support artists
  • Gathering of Beautiful Places, an immersive experience to explore and share your favourite places
  • Discussion around if we are getting too numb in the face of a crisis

If you would like to find out more about these ideas and like get in touch with the ideators, leave a message at Vast Experiences.

We had an engaging discussion around feeling numb in the face of crises such as COVID or Climate Change. The importance of balancing broader facts with stories of individuals was highlighted and stories were shared about the COVID cluster in a Western Sydney Nursing home and about implications of the drying up of the Colorado River.
