Throughout Rewire’s festival days, Brandon LaBelle will host a series of gatherings at Page Not Found, with each session talking through an aspect of resonance. The three seminars will discuss how resonance operates in experiences of cooperation and communal effort, as well as its place within expressions of social recognition. By gathering and reflecting together, the seminars aim to nurture a performative scene of resonant creation.
