Miss Baltazar Open Lab curated by Miss Universe
In Open Lab sessions we experiment with the technology we played with in the previous week’s workshop. It gives room discuss questions that came up and demand further investigation. In this Open Lab session, we will expand on the issues Miss Universe introduced in the workshop on women in the Congo. The participants can share their thoughts or related projects, tell about their own lives and backgrounds.
