As the earliest days of the pandemic approached, our friends at Likeminds were planning a weekend of ideas, activities and festivities in the hills outside Los Angeles. They had gathered a group of artists and visionaries to speak on the topic of movement: Dance, migration, political and cultural movements, and the movements of our own bodies were all on the docket.

This November, we present a series of three speakers from the Likeminds lineup who were unable to present their ideas when the weekend was cancelled due to Covid.
