The Culture Behind the Mask: The Adaptation of Communication

Join us as we look through the lens of cultural difference by exploring mask wearing practices in a range of diverse cultures & religious communities different than our own. We will be taking a look at the practice of veiling & masking, the differences based on region and culture, and have an open discussion about how it impacts our cultural perspective.
 
Experience how other cultures have adapted to wearing face coverings and how we can use this information to improve our communication skills.
