Participants included:

- Michelle Boulé with the word Empathy

- Valda Setterfield with the word Experience
- Chrysa Parkinson with the word Glitch
- Dean Moss with the word History
- Gerard & Kelly with the word Labor

This event marked the book launch for DANSE: A Catalogue, edited by Noémie Solomon and published by Les presses du réel and the French Embassy.
