A little note about our curiously digital festival
This is new for us too! So many people have come together at short notice, remotely, across multiple time zones and many of us from our own homes too, to try create something positive, in a new digital format, during a time that has been difficult for so many.Like any good experiment, some hiccups might happen or things might not go exactly as you or we expected – hang in there, we’ll be working hard to make sure things run as smoothly as they can.
Wishing you a lovely festival and a curious day today.
