Episode 14, Signal Vol. 12, Aging, Inclusion and Homelessness

The Corona Virus pandemic has shown our systems' weaknesses and shortcomings in long-term care and senior housing globally. Homelessness is a growing issue among older adults as their population is rising. Lack of social and financial support are the main drivers of this problem. Social isolation during COVID is only making the situation more complicated. These shortcomings, the rise of the senior population and the lack of social and financial support reveal the need for public health strategies to address the diversity and wide range of seniors. In this episode, we discuss housing for seniors, income and gender disparity and cognitive difficulties amongst the older population with Dr. Andrea Iaboni and Dr. Michelle Wyndham-West.

Episode 13, Art and Inclusion Vol. 2, Trapped in Libya

Nine years after the fall of Gaddafi’s regime, Libya is an unstable country and dealing with civil war. Regional and global players are influencing the crisis rather than calming the region down. Alongside all social and political issues happening, there are many African migrants trapped in Libya without any hope for a better situation. They can’t move to Europe or going back to their home countries. Our guest, Michelangelo Severgnini, is a filmmaker, musician and radio producer, who spend more than two years to produce a documentary, Exodus – Escape from Libya, of this humanitarian crisis. He is sharing his experience and storytelling approach with us.

Episode 12, Art and Disability

This episode is a first of a series of podcasts with the focus on the intersection between art and inclusion. Art is a vast topic on its own, the same as the notion of inclusion. Art could come in many forms, cultures and areas and for a variety of audiences. Speaking of art and inclusion includes and refers to at least three main topics, the artists, the audience and the subjects and mediums. In this series, Quantization teamed up with Colin Clark to focus on different art + inclusion topics. For the first episode, we invited Cyn Rozeboom, the Executive Director of Tangled art + disability and an artist herself.

Episode 11-Built Environment and Public Health

The definition of home varies in different contexts and times and, at the same time, is shaped by its residents. Same as how we define our homes or living places, we are affected by our lifestyle and where we stay the most. In events like the current pandemic, the COVID-19, we are not only spending most of our days at home, but many of us should work, study, exercise, entertain kids and pets, and do many other activities while at home. As a result, we face many new challenges every day and many shared experiences that exclude us from social and personal activities. We should not forget that staying home does not have the same meaning and value for everyone. We have to recognize that people live in a large variety of conditions, being alone, different types of families, sharing places and homelessness, and also people who can't stay at home due to their jobs and responsibilities. All these points prompted us to think about home, and how can we redefine home for the post-COVID-19 time...

Episode 10, Sustainability and Inclusion

Climate change is one of the most urgent problems of our era. The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs report number 152 from 2017 focuses on climate change and social inequality. The report identifies three main channels through which the inequality-aggravating effects of climate change develops, (a) increase in the exposure of the disadvantaged groups to the adverse effects of climate change; (b) increase in their susceptibility to damage caused by climate change, and (c) decrease in their ability to cope and recover from the damage suffered. The report shows the relation between climate change and marginalized populations.

Episode 9, Classical Art and Augmentation

Reality is a complex subject, and it is becoming more sophisticated in the context of art. Art, in its nature, manipulate and recreates reality for different reasons. In our area, we can add a layer to the complexity of art by adding augmented reality. Augmented Reality (AR) is not only a technology, but it also brings more questions and speculation about the old problem of: "What is reality?"

Episode 8, Development of the International Conventional indicators

In this episode of Quantization, Marcia Rioux and Jutta Treviranus are discussing the crisis for the indicators of convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, Convention on the Rights of the Child, on the Rights of Women, for the sustainable development goals and many more. They are talking on how we measure success or failure of these programs with crude measurements designed and developed through the north-south dialogue, with middle-out or from the largest to smallest approaches. And how we should change the pattern by starting south-north conversation to be able to understand what's happening at the grassroots.
