This online panel will explore the past, present and future of distributed events, taking input from artists, scientists and activists. We will explore ways of making use of the internet to connect communities, to create international events that are inclusive, diverse and promote cultural exchange. This discussion will be against the backdrop of ecological breakdown, while looking to take on the challenge of making new spaces for cultural exchange.
