Now more than ever, we need to stay connected. Social distancing may contract our physical world by limiting human proximity, but our intellects must fly free. We present a series of informal, complimentary webinars designed to reframe the way we think during this period of isolation. We hope this fosters learning, discussion and reflection.
Meet Dr. Swift and expert guests in a casual setting as they share knowledge and novel concepts that will shape the future of our craft. We hope these discussions transfer the personality of offline gatherings (laughter, curiosity, story-telling and human connection) into the virtual world.
