continuously emerging web of information that will serve as a platform
to engage with new and existing voices.

events and their summaries – soon to be fully completed. Please take a

lecture and discussion event into the Bright Collisions Symposium of
Todays Art Festival on Saturday, September 24th. The event will remain
