VIDEO WEBINAR/ ONLINE CONVERSATION
The panel discussion was followed by live community-building and dialogue about drought, plus commentary and sharing from participants who contributed art, poetry, or other works for the gallery.
The event was video-enabled so those who elected to turn their webcams on could see each other talk face to face for a more connected experience.
Feedback from participants focused on the richness of the discussion and how emotionally touching and powerful so much of the content felt for all of us.
