Zoom for the LPV garden screening on Friday, October 9th @ 8pm

We created a Zoom event as we've done for most events this season. It creates the opportunity to experience the event remotely and if so announced potentially decreasing the density of physical attendance. Though not the same as a physical experience its commensurate with our experimental agenda, as each event has been different as the covid protocols continue to shift on a nearly daily basis. As we've moved in the direction of  less restrictive gathering inside the garden gates (at this point limited to no more than 25 people at any time), we ask all hosting partners to share with us the responsibility for monitoring density, distance and masks.  We'll continue the curb side seating and in the absence of rain expect less of a static viewing condition We hope this to allow for a less strictly frontal orientation. We'll depend on MorUs to determine how or if the Zoom announcement will be conveyed in the Eventbrite listing. As the event approaches we can discuss how the Zoom will be managed regarding the streaming. I expect hand held devices similarly to what we did last time but in this case with multiple devices commensurate with what the focal points may be. We'll assign Zoom co-hosting accordingly. Here's the Zoom invite information:
