The Sense Virtual Meet-Ups are all about having open conversations to reflect on our varied yet collective experiences. We hope to create a space where you can connect with those from around the world to exchange stories, ideas and mind-expanding perspectives. We hope these meet-ups open your eyes to alternative perspectives ; and that you find the space safe and open enough to share…
