A Victoria business will host free live and interactive video calls to help people enjoy their time self-isolating.

”With all of us doing our best to isolate ourselves physically during this pandemic, it’s more important than ever for us to stay connected as a community in every other way we can and keep learning and sharing,” reads a statement from Kwench.
