are the intesives part of the ILI or independent? if part of the ILI are the same for each cohort or different?

Do you look for geographic diversity from the participants when you are choosing a cohort?
Joel Jacinto

Wonderful to witness and affirmation of Kumu Vicky's offering to use the Hawaiian term of "ili" for the entire program. If I may offer, in the indigenous Kalinga tradition (Northen Philippine Cordillera region popularized by iconic tattoo practitioner Whang Od), ili means village!
Shari Weinberger
53:10
Based on your past cohorts, how many applications do you expect this year?
Amelia Longo
53:11
Some logistics questions - When does the program start? What is expected before the first intensive in September? Are the dates set for the online meetings?

Amelia Longo

I’d love to get a sense of the time commitment. How frequent and long are the online meetings? What kind of work happens outside of intensives and online meetings, and how much time should participants plan to dedicate to any work outside meetings?
