The Virtual Celtic Connections Conference 2022: Journey Home is now over!


We hope that it was a worthwhile and rewarding three months for those who attended.

Over the course of 3 months, 490+ attendees spent the equivalent of 131 days, 12 hours, 12 minutes, and 5 seconds watching recordings of 51 presentations, 13 chats, and the Ancestors Roadshow.

To everyone who made this seminar possible - volunteers, presenters, donors, and sponsors - we can only say, "Thank You!"

We would like to hear from those who participated.  Tell us what you liked, what you disliked, and what we can do better.   If you haven't already sent in your evaluation, you can give us your feedback by clicking here.
