2020 SKOLL WORLD FORUM GOES VIRTUAL
Entertain Impact worked on this year’s Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, where we supported music programming curation and securing performers. Official programming at Oxford was cancelled in light of recent events, however 60+ panels and events occurred virtually between March 30 – April 3.
On April 2, the World Forum honored five organizations doing vital work at the Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship with a special performance from Chilean pop-star and activist Francisca Valenzuela. For more on this year’s Awardees, see here.
As an added bonus, our own Creative Director, Marie Christine, hosted a Virtual Guided Walk on April 1. See #AStrollWithSkoll here.
