#1plus1plus1is3 was a polished solid production, curated & organized by De Angela L. Duff.

#1plus1plus1is3 was a 3-day virtual symposium, celebrating Prince for 40 years of Controversy, 30 years of Diamonds & Pearls, and 20 years of The Rainbow Children, on 26-28 March 2021 (Fri-Sun)!

We had 500 people register on the Airmeet platform from 20 countries including the US, UK, Netherlands, Canada, Scotland, Belgium, France, Germany, Australia, and Denmark. We also had international speakers from the UK, the Netherlands, and Scotland. There was a steady-state of approximately 100 to 200 people at ALL times over the course of 3 days for approximately 8-9 hours per day.

You can find the speakers, abstracts, and schedule on the symposium website. You will also find the video archives that have been edited and posted, so far, in the #1plus1plus1is3 playlist on YouTube. We’ll be adding more over the next several weeks in April and May. A couple of the keynotes have also been uploaded to vimeo:

Registration on Eventbrite was FREE but we kindly requested attendees to consider donating to the PRN Alumni Foundation!

PRN Alumni Foundation, officially formed in 2017, is comprised of former employees of Paisley Park and the international icon Prince. The group’s mission is to continue the generosity of their late boss who supported opportunities for underprivileged youth to grow in music, tech, arts, and education, and helped alumni members in-need. The foundation also supports urban farming initiatives that create sources of healthy foods where they are otherwise scarce.
