USK Talks Season 1

When the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hit, USK felt that social distancing didn’t mean we couldn’t still connect and learn from each other. In an effort to bring us together USk started a series called USk Talks. Every Sunday we brought new guests to talk about what inspires them in this moment and to share their sketches, favorite tools and to answer your questions live.
