On this online hang-out they will share their insight on what it means to work with the animated techniques and how their paths have been.

Through an online space where EWA members from all around can connect and know each other, we organise once a month a meeting where an expert introduces a topic followed by Q&A and members can interact.

Each meeting will last 90 minutes aprox and it's open to 20-25 EWA members, who can introduce themselves and participate in the following Q&A.

An invitation to join the talk will be sent to EWA members (first come, first served basis).
