Thanks so much to all who came to the first of our newly restored Round Table series! It was fantastic for Ainaa Azman and I to see so many new faces alongside a few familiar ones. We can't wait for the next (yet to be announced) one that will be on Dec 18th (we plan to do the third Wednesday of every month moving forward)!

It was great to meet you all! It's very refreshing and inspiring to see people working on so many projects in different artistic areas.
Looking forward to joining the next one!
