No one needs to be reminded that 2020 was an extremely unprecedented challenging year.
But in amidst the chaos, fear, uncertainty, separation and loss Beyond Skin & Partners drew strength from each other and produced many audio/visual collaborations involving 26 countries complimenting 100's of workshops/events, also providing paid work to over 100 artists/technicians/facilitators.
