PLANS ARE CANCELLED celebrates this re-examination. People might think that the phrase itself hints towards the negative, or conjures thoughts of disappointment and cynicism, but that’s not something I saw in the work, or in the students.

There is a certain agency in defining something for yourself; in creating a worldview that makes sense to you, based on your sober examination of the facts, and not abiding by the ones given to you by society and its various actors, even if they were well-intentioned. Cancelled plans are opportunities for new ones to be made; ones that better fit the situation we currently find ourselves in. And let’s face it, as we all get older, we learn that sometimes cancelled plans are the best ones.
