SOLO: Surviving or Thriving? is a project funded by UCL East through the Listen and Respond programme which seeks to explore UCL as a whole can best serve the needs of communities and the voluntary sector in London as they confront and recover from COVID-19.

It has been developed by Jay Derrick at the UCL Institute of Education, Department of Education, Practice and Society, in collaboration with Tanya Harris. Jay’s research focusses on learning, productivity and innovation in everyday work practices. Tanya is a freelance photographer, an arts and cultural education consultant and long-term resident of Hackney.
