On the 6th and 7th of July 2022 our second workshop will take place. If the pandemic situation permits, this will be the first on-site meeting of our project. It is planned to take place in the amphitheatre of the Liryc institute in Pessac, near Bordeaux. If necessary the meeting will go online, but the dates will not change.
