CAN and FLOCK delivered the 25 March event online through Zoom.
FLOCK is a monthly forum for Perth’s independent artists to share practice and facilitated discussion with each other. FLOCK is for artists, by artists. CAN hosted their first event for 2020.
CAN and FLOCK are working together to get a version of the event published for everyone to interact with online. We will keep you posted.
WORKSHOP: YOU ARE COMMUNITY
