HOLA Talks Season 1

In an effort to serve our community of artists during the quarantine and social distancing times, the Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors has organized a series of online conversations, Q&As and workshops. The HOLA TALKS were made through the video conferencing platform Zoom and were TOTALLY FREE. In the following list you can find the list of the sessions that took place and a link to their recordings. 

HOLA Talks are possible because of the generosity of our speakers and our partnership win HB Studio. Thank you!
