Live Events

Although we decided a while ago that we wanted to approach this online version of Counterflows a little differently and not present live streaming of performance, we have decided that offering talks or Q&A sessions live would be a good way to open up discussion and also have some connection to the artists involved. The talk series will present lively discussions between artists, as hosted by various guests including ourselves.
