Beyond all the performances, there will be an online film screening on May 27 in partnership with the St. John's International Women's Film Festival of Fanny: The Right to Rock, which will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker Bobbi Jo Hart and moderated by Jenina MacGillivray.
There's also a panel discussion happening called "Cyber Shows and Remote Collaboration," as well as various artist interviews hosted by Renee Sharpe and \garbagefile.
