The Communities of Practice was founded on the basis of community connection. The beginning of the Covid-19 Pandemic in 2020 saw a global move to Zoom, highlighting the necessity of nourishing human interactions, in whatever way they may be accessible. Over its few years the Community has shape-shifted and grown to address the ever-changing world in which we find ourselves and so a number of events, regular and occasional, have been held to meet the needs of our community and the world at large.
