Participants showed how the COVID-19 pandemic affected their sense of social context, including their local neighbourhood environment. This book is a showcase of the places and situations that were identified as facilitating or inhibiting social connections in people's home environments at this time, their explanations of the way they understand and relate to these places, and what they think it would take to generate a greater sense of sociability. It accompanies a longer analytical report of the same titlle.

Chambers is a dance artist living and working on the unceded Coast Salish territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.Her movement based practice considers how choreography can be an empathic practice rooted in collaborative creation, close observation, and the body as a site of a cumulative embodied archive.
