#DM40GB30 was a 3-day virtual symposium, celebrating Prince for 40 yrs of Dirty Mind & 30 yrs of Graffiti Bridge, on June 12, 13, & 14, 2020 that Polished Solid curated and co-produced!
She was so looking forward to the Prince #DM40GB30 Symposium in April. Then, COVID-19 happened and she had to postpone the original event, eventually pivoting to a virtual symposium online using the Hopin platform.
We had 1,200 people register on the Hopin platform from 16 countries: US, UK, Netherlands, Canada, France, Australia, Germany, Spain, Russia, Peru, New Zealand, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Italy, and Ireland. We also had international speakers from the UK, the Netherlands, and Scotland. There was a steady state of 300 to 400 people at ALL times over the course of 3 days for approximately 8-9 hours per day.
You can find a recap of the schedule, alongside speaker bios & abstracts on the symposium website at http://bit.ly/DM40GB30.
While it won’t be the same experience without the communal Hopin platform, video archives will be forthcoming in July at https://www.youtube.com/user/deangelalduff/playlists.
