How do I book?
Unlike our regular Context tours, we're taking payment and bookings for these Context online seminars through Eventbrite. The links above will take you to our Eventbrite pages, where you can select which date and time you'd like to attend the seminar, input your payment information, and confirm your order. 

I've booked. Now what?
After you confirm your booking on Eventbrite, you'll receive an email 48 hours before the seminar with call in details. You can join the seminar from your computer or tablet running Windows or MacOS. Once the seminar starts, you'll be able to speak with the scholar leading the seminar, as well as other fellow joiners. 

Are these seminars live, or pre-recorded?
These seminars are live! Each seminar will leave 15 to 30 minutes at the end of the session for conversation and questions. 

How long does each seminar last?
Each topic will run for approximately 90 minutes, including Q & A. 

I'd like to join but these don't work with my schedule. Are you offering other dates and times?
For now, we're offering only the times and dates that are available on Eventbrite. However, we anticipate adding more dates, times, and topics over the coming months. Send us a note to let us know what you might be interested in.
