Lost in Translation: Art and Music Festival (2021) was an event that blended visual arts, music, poetry, film and performance art for a virtual audience through live video streaming. Audiences tuned in through their devices to live performances from emerging artists and musicians and browsed a virtual gallery of visual art. The festival highlighted creative explorations of ideas, emotions, cultures, language, artistic processes and techniques, identities, etc., of all kinds and a consideration for what is lost and gained in any processes of translation.
