Abstract

Little did we know back in May 2019, that by the same time the following year we would be working from home, with the UK in lockdown, protecting ourselves and our loved ones from the scourge of a novel virus sweeping the world and delivering devastation and destruction to communities and economies, the likes of which had not been seen since the great Influenza pandemic of 1918.

And yet, in the offices of SMASH_UK, an organisation working for equality, diversity and inclusion in STEM and Arts education and careers, you might have been forgiven for thinking we had some kind of dubious insight. For May 2019 was when we discovered that SMASH_UK had been awarded a large grant from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (the UK research council that funds physical sciences and astronomical research) and the Royal Academy of Engineering, through our brilliant lead partners at Middlesex University, to deliver a co-design programme and theatrical performance of a fully immersive experience called “Space Plague.”
