Almost Live Zoom events are part of VocalEye’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re here to make live arts events more accessible, even if they’re recorded, and to stay connected, even if we’re at a distance. Thank you for holding this virtual space with us until we can safely gather together again.
