Conversation at the loft

Conversation at the Loft aims to create a open forum for in-depth discussion on topics encompassing our spheres of learning, creating, and living. Each installment revolves around a changing topic with a guest moderator and an active participatory group (that's you!) that collectively question, examine, and imagine terrains of thought and thought-making. Join to lead, propose, or simply partake in a conversation session today!
