Dear participants, co-curators & friends, It’s all been on our mind this week. What happens when this workshop is over? What do we do next? Where do we go from here?

A noteContinue reading “What do you need to know next?”
Coming soon. In the next few days we’ll be opening up our Slack workspace, launching our email discussion group, and letting you know the 4 others that will be in your learning group. We’ll also be sharing a few videos here to help you get oriented. Welcome!
