VTS Look Club Online is an opportunity to come together as a community, to practice looking, talking, listening, and engaging with art and each other.
VTS Look Club – Online was created at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic as the VTS Team focused on supporting the VTS community to remain present and connected through this tumultuous time of unknown length. The first event took place on April 21, 2020, and since then, VTS Look Club Online has become an experimental, free, weekly, one-hour event, for anyone to join via Zoom.
As this program evolves, we are interested in reflecting with you about VTS Look Club – Online! Please share your thoughts on the VTS Look Club – Online! Program Survey (2023).
VTS Look Club Online takes place on Wednesdays, with a rotating monthly start time (10:00am, 1:00pm, and 3:00pm – Pacific Time) to accommodate global time zones.
Free registration each month on the VTS Events Page.
