Encounters

Luv ’til it Hurts likes to meet people and share what we’re up to. Sometimes we help make events and exhibitions, and we also ‘luv’ informal conversations that become ‘letters’ on the site. See Luv Letters and our other Features. Whether online or in person, we’d LUV to share our game with you. Please use it to make your own encounters if it works; otherwise, let us know how we can participate in what you’re doing.
