Since March 2020, this question has loomed over community leaders across the world. Season 2 of Konversations explores “The New Economy” that has resulted from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. From restaurant owners to nonprofit directors, eight community leaders share their experiences pivoting their operations during the pandemic and the challenges they continue to face as the business sector navigates a “new normal.”
Season 1 of Konversations was an in-person Durham event series held in the Kompleks Creative studio in Downtown Durham. We explored the “creative economy”, including the intersection of business, creativity and community. The season featured guests such as DJ Maseo of De La Soul and the founders of Durham’s Black August in the Park.
