by Joel McDonald
Featuring over a dozen talented performers, artists, and poets, the Pacific Region Virtual Talent show held on Saturday, May 23rd, was a smashing success! Many thanks to Sarah Bowers and the Affirmation Pacific leadership team, Affirmation Los Angeles President Victoria Hutchings, Vaughn Larsen, and all who participated in this successful online event. To date, video from the event has been viewed over 1,200 times!
This event was also the first virtual event from Affirmation that was streamed simultaneously to Facebook, YouTube, and the Affirmation website, allowing all within the Affirmation Community to enjoy the event without needing to have an account or log into any particular platform. The success of this event will be a model for future events, including a series of monthly virtual firesides and portions of this year’s Affirmation International Conference which will be a hybrid virtual and local event due to COVID-19.
