W3C TPAC 2020 Social Events

W3C is pleased to offer a combination of live and prerecorded social events this year to give attendees an opportunity to virtually socialize and plan a break from remote meetings. Tip: Could be a fun way to initiate conversation; connect with the growing TPAC community, participants from member organizations, and W3C Staff.

Live events will be held on Monday 26 October and Thursday 29 October at 13:30 UTC and last 20 minutes. Join us, clear your mind and get ready for engaging and stimulating discussions!

We encourage everyone to participate. Learn a delicious new recipe to share. Experience the tranquil benefits of yoga. Listen or view a prerecorded music performance, watch a cooking show from W3C's Keio Team, or take time for a one-minute audio meditation break.

Prerecorded events may be enjoyed at any time. We have a variety of audio performances and a cooking video by W3C Staff and Invited Guests.

Absolutely no yoga experience necessary. If you have a yoga mat or towel, use it. But literally, all you need is you! We guarantee that you will feel better after the class than you did before.


Prerecorded audio and video

Find a comfortable chair and enjoy music performances by talented artists in our community! Watch a cooking show by W3C's Keio Team at your leisure. (Recipe and Instruction.) Meditate to one of the calming audio options before meetings start or after meetings end.

Prerecorded audio and video events may be heard or viewed at any time. Enjoy as many times as you like, or make it a daily practice!
