Zoom

How do I access the workshops?

All workshops will take place online, as Zoom workshops.

If you have not already done so, you'll need to set up a Zoom account, which is free. The first time you log in, schedule, or connect to a Zoom meeting using a computer you will need to download the Zoom desktop application. Downloading and installing the desktop application takes a few minutes so you'll want to do it ahead of time before first using it. Mobile users will need to download the app from Google Play or the Apple App Store.

Where are the links to attend the Zoom meetings?

We will email specific Zoom links for Friday's workshops the morning of Friday, July 30. We will email Zoom links for Saturday's workshop the morning of Saturday, July 31.

Will the Zoom workshops be recorded? Can I watch them later instead of attending live?

No, these are live Zoom events. We will not be recording them for later access.
