This year #AdventuresLive is going BIG! From the 15th of July through November 2020, join The Odyssey of Desire: a series of online conversations and explorations that will lead us on a journey through the depth and breadth of our desires, in all their complex glory.

- A virtual Odyssey of Desire Art Exhibition, launching on Instagram on 22nd August
With many more discussions, and live and online events, to be announced over the next few weeks.
