Initiated by Prem Krishnamurthy in March 2020 to counteract isolation and support new forms of community, Present! is a live, collaborative, online event series that brings together artists, designers, curators, writers, musicians and other creative folks. This experimental format combines a virtual lecture, talkshow, and Sunday sermon with embodied activities (group karaoke, meditation, dance, movement therapy), alongside readings, screenings, performances, and discussion groups. Based in Berlin, Present! prototypes a diverse, participatory, and hybrid platform for sharing emergent tools and experiences across borders.
