P L A T F O R M is an open source lecture series designed to promote active discussion. P L A T F O R M is interested in creating a space in which writers/artists/academics/performers get to discuss things like research, practice, and process, offering a social discourse beyond their work. There is a brief Q & A at the end of each event.
