The Connected Project

We at iKOR want to create a sense of connectedness in a time of uncertainty. Like yourselves, we thrive on attending events and being around others. With many events around the globe being postponed or canceled and shelter-in-place ordinances enacted, we look at these livestreams as a way to fill part of that void. We invite you to escape for just a bit when you tune in or as you watch a previously recorded broadcast. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Positive.
