InsightPV Welcome Video


We warmly invite you to participate in a survey about your experience of InsightPV in Easthampton. This survey will close at the end of the day on Tuesday, January 22, 2019. It is for anyone who has connected with IPV in some way in the past or present, whether you've dropped in one time or have been coming for years, including volunteers, teachers, and practice leaders, and we also want to encourage the voices of people from non-dominant groups in the wider culture who have so far been under-represented at IPV. We value your perspective.

***All voices are valuable. We need you.***
