Edition 8

Re-Think, Re-Act, Re-Start

From the Editors

UQ8 centres on adaption and response. In these tempestuous times we want to show you what others are thinking, how they are acting and what changes they are looking forward to. Instead of being buried under limitations that we currently face, our aim is to encourage working with them, turning moments of weakness into future strengths. This issue of UQ brings to you a diverse collection of voices – from the established practitioners of today, to the emerging talent of the future – who explore what it is to confront our current reality and adapt towards the days ahead.
