It's true; time flies - it seems so recently that we were putting together the first-ever virtual event during lockdown for 2020. However, as we move closer to October for WOMEX 21 in Porto, we've had many inquiries about this year's 'Digital Programme' in the past few weeks.
What about those who cannot travel to Porto? Are you doing anything online this year? What about those who cannot attend?
WOMEX 21 will be an in-person event in Porto and not mirrored in the digital realm; however, we will - before the on-site event takes place - bring an extra bit of the WOMEX programme to a screen near you so that you can enjoy it from the comfort of your homes and safe spaces.
We have lined up an exciting digital programme. The Digital Networking Sessions covers regions across all continents, enabling you to connect and network with your peers worldwide. The Digital Showcases will be live premiers with a repeat broadcast on the second day. We will be sharing more details in the coming weeks.
How to Participate?
This year, our digital programme is FREE and open to everyone on the world wide web via our YouTube channel and Facebook page. But, if you would like to participate in the networking sessions, connect with others, exchange ideas and engage in discussions, you can access via Zoom link through your virtualWOMEX membership.
If you have an active virtualWOMEX membership or are registered for WOMEX 21 then you can use the same login details to access this upcoming digital programme. If not, you can renew your annual virtualWOMEX membership or get a new one for 79 EUR.
