What we're about

Do you ever imagine the end of the world? What does it look like to you? What does it feel like?

This group is for those who want to discover if there is more to the apocalypse than we thought.

What would it be like to imagine the apocalypse not as a historical event, but as a living thing - unfathomable, yet recognizably biological? How many ways is dystopia related to the end of the world - as defense, as disguise, as catalyst? What will dating be like during the apocalypse? Can we keep our pets or do we have to eat them?
