Join the creative team behind Decameron Row, an incredible art project collecting videos from artists around the world depicting their experiences during social distancing.

Exclusive for ONA20, this very special virtual tour will feature a global collection of world-famous authors, designers, choreographers, journalists, event organizers and more. Each will be on hand to briefly discuss their piece and answer questions from the ONA community.

As a bonus, we'll be hosting an exclusive viewing of the short film, Outside, a piece about the pandemic, created by Israeli surrealist writer Etgar Keret and world-renowned choreographer Inbal Pinto. The creators will be on hand to discuss the piece, and this marks the first-ever conference appearance for the film.

While the art pieces of Decameron Row depict the gamut of emotional experiences, we know journalists have had a tough year. Our tour intentionally will be focusing on more fun, thoughtful or positive videos for this experience.

Note: If you click around on your own, be aware some pieces have nudity, others can get dark and a few imply self harm, so be prepared and keep an open mind if you go exploring!

This session is designed for:

  • We organized this with our entire community in mind. Everyone needs a bit of a break, so this will discuss inspired pieces during a time of social isolation and include some show-stopping drop-ins.
