“Working from home really reduces the creative input you get from colleagues and clients each day - I signed up for www.stackmagazines.com to get a new independent magazine from around the world send each month. It reminds me, how many interesting stories and creative projects that are still happening even during a pandemic.” - Lea, Senior Anthropologist.
“Although the pandemic has physically separated us, our new familiarity with online calls and events opens opportunities to connect with people on the other side of the world. I have joined an online book club initiated by www.shityoushouldcareabout.com. It both motivates me to read new things and engage in interesting conversations with people from abroad” - Borbala Kun, Design Intern
“When the repetition of everyday life gets too claustrophobic, I find that literature allows for great escapes into other worlds. I can recommend Zadie Smith’s “Swing time”, with a very time relevant statement at the beginning of the prologue: “When the music changes, so does the dance” deeply entertaining and a touching story. Recently I have also read Stine Pilgaards two books “Meter i sekundet” and “Lejlighedssange.” - Louise Vang Jensen, Director of Insights and Research
“Staying home has inspired me to get a subscription for a good old school newspaper. You have interesting articles right at hand, it gives your eyes a well-deserved break from the screen and because the newspaper curate the articles for me, I have become engaged in topics, I didn’t even know I had an interest in.” - Emil Buch Jacobsen, Consultant
