In October 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, and one of the longest lockdowns in Europe, I began searching for something to sustain me through the dark months of winter and early spring. Kreutzer Etudes and Unaccompanied Bach weren’t quite providing the social aspect of life I needed to stay afloat. I came across a postgraduate course in Creativity, Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Trinity College Dublin. It was government subsidised, was nine months long, was all online, and was a significant commitment time wise. This was it! This was my life line! So, I applied, got a place, and began an extraordinary journey that changed my perception and thinking about design, it’s impact on our lives, and how transformative human-centred design can be.
